Laser ionization of noble gases by Coulomb-barrier suppression
Laser ionization of noble gases was studied with a 1.053-μm, 1-psec Nd:glass laser. A systematic scan of intensities from mid-1013 W/cm2 to mid-1016 W/cm2 was performed, resulting in the productionExpand

Positron Production in Multiphoton Light-by-Light Scattering
A signal of 106 14 positrons above background has been observed in collisions of a low-emittance 46.6-GeV electron beam with terawatt pulses from a Nd:glass laser at 527 nm wavelength in anExpand

Studies of nonlinear QED in collisions of 46.6 GeV electrons with intense laser pulses
We report on measurements of quantum electrodynamic processes in an intense electromagnetic wave, where nonlinear effects (both multiphoton and vacuum polarization) are prominent. Nonlinear ComptonExpand

Relativistic positron creation using ultraintense short pulse lasers.
We measure up to 2x10;{10} positrons per steradian ejected out the back of approximately mm thick gold targets when illuminated with short ( approximately 1 ps) ultraintense ( approximately 1x10;{20}Expand

Streaked optical pyrometer system for laser-driven shock-wave experiments on OMEGA.
The temperature of laser-driven shock waves is of interest to inertial confinement fusion and high-energy-density physics. We report on a streaked optical pyrometer that measures the self-emission ofExpand

Point design targets, specifications, and requirements for the 2010 ignition campaign on the National Ignition Facility
Point design targets have been specified for the initial ignition campaign on the National Ignition Facility [G. H. Miller, E. I. Moses, and C. R. Wuest, Opt. Eng. 443, 2841 (2004)]. The targetsExpand

Making relativistic positrons using ultraintense short pulse lasers
This paper describes a new positron source using ultraintense short pulse lasers. Although it has been theoretically studied since the 1970s, the use of lasers as a valuable new positron source wasExpand

Shock compression of quartz in the high-pressure fluid regime
The Hugoniot of quartz has been measured using laser-driven shock waves with pressures from 2 to 15 Mbars. Within this pressure range silica transforms from a liquid near melt into a dense plasma.Expand
