Progress in long scale length laser-plasma interactions

Abstract:

The first experiments on the National Ignition Facility (NIF) have employed the first four beams to measure propagation and laser backscattering losses in large ignition-size plasmas. Gas-filled targets between 2 mm and 7 mm length have been heated from one side by overlapping the focal spots of the four beams from one quad operated at 351 nm (3ω) with a total intensity of 2×1015W cm-2. The targets were filled with 1 atm of CO2 producing of up to 7 mm long homogeneously heated plasmas with de...
