Isochoric generation and spectroscopic diagnosis of high energy-density systems

Abstract:

Advances in both optical laser and X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) facilities have extended the regimes accessible in laser targets. Petawatt lasers such as Orion at AWE can be routinely used to drive targets to extreme conditions of multi-keV temperatures. Isochoric heating with an XFEL to temperatures of 100’s of eV has been demonstrated and well described on prototypical metals and low-Z mixtures, and the bright, tunable x-ray source is often used as a probe in Warm Dense Matter (WDM) ...
