The requirements of the Laser Fusion Program place severe demands on the ability to monitor the important parameters of the laser beams. This has resulted in the development of novel and imaginative methods to provide the various required measurements. The design and implementation of a beam-diagnostics system for the Helios laser fusion facility at Los Alamos are described.
