Paper Abstract

The interaction of subpicosecond 1.06 micrometers laser light at intensities up to 1018 W/cm2 with dense preformed plasmas is investigated by measurements of the absorption of the laser light in the plasma and by measurements of the production of bremsstrahlung x- rays. Absorption measurements are made by collecting the scattered light in an Ulbricht sphere. Light scattered in the backward and specular directions is collected separately. Measurements are presented for both high and low Z targets. X-ray production is measured using a nine channel filter/scintillator spectrometer.
