Experimental results [1] for the reflection coefficient of shock-compressed dense Xenon plasmas at pressures of 1.6 – 17 GPa and temperatures around 30 000 K using a laser beam with λ = 1.06 μm are compared with calculations based on different theoretical approaches to the dynamical collision frequency. It is found that a reasonable description can be given… CONTINUE READING
