Abstract : Research at 5 premier Russian Institutes in Moscow and St. Petersburg have been supported under this program. These efforts include: 'High Power Laser interactions with Surfaces' (Kurchatov Institute, Moscow Region). 'Tunable Diode Laser Spectroscopy'(General Physics Institute, Moscow),'Development of New Optical Instrumentation for UV, EUV, X-ray, and Thermal Neutron Radiation' (Lebedev Institute, Moscow), 'The Mechanisms of and preliminary experiments for DV and Near X-ray Lasers' (Spectroscopy Institute, Moscow Region), and 'SiC Device-Research'(loffe Institute, St. Petersburg). The best measure of first year progress is the impressive number of publications: 22 papers have been accepted for publication in referred professional journals, 66 articles are currently in preparation and/or submitted for publication, and 71 papers have been read at International Conferences. jg
