Laser Mégajoule (LMJ) is an experimental inertial confinement fusion (ICF) device being built near Bordeaux, in France by the French nuclear science directorate, CEA. Laser Mégajoule plans to deliver about 1.8 MJ of laser energy to its targets, making it about as energetic as its US counterpart, the National Ignition Facility (NIF). Laser Mégajoule is the largest ICF experiment to be built outside the US, where ICF research has been strongly related to nuclear weapons research. Likewise, Laser Mégajoule’s primary tasks will be refining fusion calculations for France’s own nuclear weapons.
