AbstractIn High Energy Lasers (HEL) a large percentage of the laser energy is wasted typically by switching onto beam dumps. Some of this wasted energy could be utilized to synthesize exotic materials which have useful commercial applications. In order to utilize this wasted energy to synthesize new and exotic materials, specialty chambers and equipment are needed. This program will review previous efforts to create new material using HELs and other laser synthesis, define the possible methodologies to create exotic new material using HELs, design possible e)cperiments and perform preliminary design for experimental chambers and equipment needed to utilize the waste HEL to synthesize, select materials that have commercial markets. An additional variation is to retrofit existing reaction chamber(s) for scouting experiments to demonstrate the viability of using HELs to synthesize exotic materials including fullerenes and collect data for the design of the equipment that will subsequently be designed and fabricated.
