    Carl Haussmann came to Livermore as a military research associate and stayed on for an illustrious 45-year career. As a major force during the Laboratory's early weapons program, Haussmann helped lead the breakthrough Livermore designs for the Polaris warhead for the first submarine-launched ballistic missile. In the early 1970s, Haussmann brought strong leadership and long-range vision to Livermore's disparate laser projects, founding a laser program that today is unmatched in the world. Inertial confinement fusion and atomic vapor separation of isotopes were the major projects during his tenure, and they remain the primary focus today. Haussmann also helped create a physical environment conducive to the finest scientific research and technical development.
