National Security: For his pioneering work in the field of laser-driven inertial fusion and its application to nuclear weapon design and diagnostics, for his early, independent work on laser-plasma interactions and the role of electron heating, and for his work on hypervelocity particles and shockless acceleration to enable development of a new class of directed energy weapons.
