Generation of Warm Dense Matter using an Argon based Capillary Discharge Laser

Argon based capillary discharge lasers operating in the extreme ultra violet (EUV) at 46.9 nm output up to 0.5 mJ energy per pulse at up to 10 Hz repetition rates are capable of focussed irradiances of 10 10 W cm−2 and can be used to generate plasma in the warm dense matter regime by irradiating solid material. To model the interaction between such an EUV… (More)
