EMP mitigation from High-Intensity laser interactions is of great importance to facilities in order to decrease equipment failures and noise levels on critical diagnostics. In this paper we present the experimental results from a specific campaign on different target mounting systems in order to dramatically reduce the resultant EMP in a way that is easily deployable on almost any facility.
