Abstract:

This report contains and overview of the computer facilities associated with Pulsed Laser Laboratory of the Materials Laboratorys Electromagnetic Materials Division. Included are brief descriptions of hardware and software configurations, general operating procedures and documentation of currently implemented programs. At present, the Electronic programmable digitizers are installed and operational. The streak camera has just recently arrived and research personnel are currently developing acquisition and control programs on an as-needed basis. These programs will be documented in additional appendices. Also, a laser-beam diagnostics stage, which is being characterized at this time, will provide a permanent stage in which the power, temporal and spatial profile of the laser output can be determined. Future work will concentrate on programming and interfacing the streak camera. There will also be future equipment updates consisting of the installation of a high-resolution color terminal and 10-megabyte hard disk drives.
