It is designed to deliver about 1.4 MJ of energy on targets, for high energy density physics experiments, including fusion experiments. The first bundle of 8-beams was commissioned in October 2014. By the end of 2021, ten bundles of 8-beams are expected to be fully operational. In this paper, we will present: - The LMJ Bundles Status report - The main evolutions of the LMJ facility since ICALEPS 2019: the new target diagnostics commissioned and a new functionality to manage final optic damage with the implementation of blockers in the beam. - the result of a major milestone for the project : ‘Fusion Milestone’ PB - JACoW Publishing CP - Geneva, Switzerland SP - 989 EP - 993 KW - target KW - laser KW - experiment KW - diagnostics KW - operation DA - 2022/03 PY - 2022 SN - 2226-0358 SN - 978-3-95450-221-9 DO - doi:10.18429/JACoW-ICALEPCS2021-FRAL01 UR - https://jacow.org/icalepcs2021/papers/fral01.pdf ER -
