  • The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is a MJ-class glass laser-based facility funded by the Department of Energy which has achieving thermonuclear ignition and moderate gain as one of its main objectives. In the summer of 1998, the project is about 40% complete, and design and construction is on schedule and on cost. The NIF will start firing onto targets in 2001, and will achieve full energy in 2004. The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), together with the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) have the main responsibility for achieving x-ray driven ignition on the NIF. In the 1990's, a comprehensive seriesmore » of experiments on Nova at LLNL, followed by recent experiments on the Omega laser at the University of Rochester, demonstrated confidence in understanding the physics of x-ray drive implosions. The same physics at equivalent scales is used in calculations to predict target performance on the NIF, giving credence to calculations of ignition on the NIF. An integrated program of work in preparing the NIF for x-ray driven ignition in about 2007, and the key issues being addressed on the current ICF facilities [(Nova, Omega, Z at Sandia National Laboratory (SNL), and NIKE at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL)] are described.« less
  • Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's (LLNL's) management assigned the responsibility of conducting TSDF audits to the Waste Certification Office in August of 1994. Prior to this date, there was no mandate for LLNL to audit waste facilities, nor was there a structured program in place for conducting the audits Program development took approximately 10 months. This included writing a TSDF Audit Procedure, writing a Quality Assurance (QA) Plan, developing the required audit check lists, and using the documentation on a trial basis. A typical TSDF audit lasted one full day using three hazardous waste specialists The QA Plan is based onmore » the quality assurance and management system requirements of DOE Order 5700.6C (Quality Assurance) and ASME NQA-1 (Quality Assurance Program Requirements for Nuclear Facilities).« less
  • Since 1988, The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has conducted a Waste Minimization/Pollution Prevention Program at its Site 300 facility near Tracy, California. The site, which is located approximately 60 miles east of the city of San Francisco, is owned by the US Department of Energy and operated by the University of California. Site 300 supports research conducted as part of the Defense Systems Programs and the Laser Program. All of the operations generate hazardous waste, ranging from familiar forms such as waste oil from the vehicle maintenance operation to high explosives waste from the High Explosives Chemistry and Processingmore » areas. In addition to hazardous waste, low-level radioactive waste and occasionally mixed (radioactive and hazardous) waste, is generated at the High Explosives Testing facilities. In order to eliminate or minimize waste and pollutant discharges from these Site 300 operations, a Waste Minimization/Pollution Prevention Program was established. The program is described.« less
