Abstract : The main activities during the last four months of this contract were devoted to a detailed design of the mainstream of the experiments and the purchase of carbon carbon composite targets with appropriate specifications for these experiments. Some preliminary experiments were carried out on 3D C-C targets to get some initial quantitative information about the range of laser intensities required to cause damage to these targets. Keywords: Spallation; Fracture; Composite materials.
