Wide-angle Optical Multi-channel Probe (WOMP). This specialised laser instrument allows sophisticated nuclear experiments to be carried out without a critical mass of plutonium. The data is used to help validate the extremely complex computer codes used on supercomputers to model nuclear weapons. This research is carried out at Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico, USA. Image published in 2015.
