Abstract

We appreciate Stephen Bodner’s continuing interest in the performance of the NIF laser system. However, we find it necessary to disagree with the conclusions he reached in his comments [ Appl. Opt. 47, XXX (2008)] on “National Ignition Facility Laser Performance Status” [ Appl. Opt. 46, 3276 (2007)]. In fact, repeated and ongoing tests of the NIF beamlines have demonstrated that NIF can be expected not only to meet or exceed its requirements as established in the mid-1990s in the document National Ignition Facility Functional Requirements and Primary Criteria [Revision 1.3, Report NIF-LLNL-93–058 (1994)], but also to have the flexibility that provides for successfully meeting an ever expanding range of mission goals, including those of ignition.
