While the existence of state-of-the-art high energy density facilities (large lasers, pulsed-power machines, and powerful computers) provide high visibility and facilitate exciting advances in the field, they are not sufficient. It is difficult to attract graduate students to high energy density physics without on-site university facilities. These facilities provide critical training in high energy density physics and can lay the groundwork for research on the state-of-the-art national facilities.
For the science resulting from this effort to flourish, in a manner consistent with the scientific method, it is necessary to discuss the scientific results at periodic meetings and workshops of all interested scientists, regardless of nationality. Such workshops are vital to extracting world-class science and understanding from the basic physics data acquired on these facilities. These workshops should be open to all interested scientists (independent of nationality) and should be supported by the NNSA both philosophically and, where appropriate, monetarily.
These and many other impressive scientific achievements have resulted from the university outreach programs. The value to major programmatic missions within the NNSA, both near term and far term, is significant and clear. The committee commends the National Nuclear Security Administration for its engagement of the academic community over the past decade on frontier scientific phenomena accessible on its high energy density physics facilities, and it recommends an expansion of this program for the coming decade to include both existing and future Department of Energy facilities.
