Intensity ratio of resonance lines as a diagnostic of initial conditions suitable for XUV laser action in recombining plasmas

Abstract:

The time varying ratio of intensities of resonance lines of H- and He-like ions in laser irradiated cylindrical fibre targets is analyzed using a hydro/atomic physics code. Correspondence between the ratio and gain on the Balmer α transition of H-like ions in the adiabatically cooling and recombining plasma is found. The line ratios and absorbed energies corresponding to maximum gains for carbon, oxygen and fluorine plasmas are calculated. A useful diagnostic method is proposed for infering t...
