Abstract : Atlas is a facility designed to perform high energy-density experiments in support of weapon-physics and basic-research programs at Los Alamos. For hydrodynamic experiments, it will be capable of achieving pressures exceeding 30 Mbar in cm3 volumes. For radiation transport experiments, it will be capable of producing greater than 3 MJ of soft x-rays.
