Laser-plasma energy transport with high intensity short laser pulses

Abstract:

In order to investigate the production of plasma with simultaneous high density and high degree of ionisation and to study laser-plasma energy transport, experiments have been undertaken to measure the plasma electron densities formed in a thin layer of aluminium buried below an overlay of plastic when the plastic overlay is irradiated by focussed lasers of wavelength (and pulse length) .53μm (20ps); .35μm (20ps) and .27 μm (50ps). For the .53μm and .35μm wavelengths, the shorter pulse length...
