Short-pulse, high-intensity laser-plasma interactions are investigated experimentally with temporally and spectrally resolved soft x-ray diagnostics. The emitted x-ray spectra from solid targets with various atomic numbers are characterized for a laser pulse width T, 400 fs. With low contrast (lo’), the x-ray spectrum in the 1 = 40-100 A spectral region is… CONTINUE READING
