Paper Abstract

The properties of a laser influence the interaction of the intense laser light with materials. We describe some of the diagnostics that we have implemented at the Los Alamos Bright Source to correlate the changes in the x-ray spectrum and temporal history of laser generated silicon plasmas with the changes of the incident XeCl laser light. One property of special interest is the multiple pulsing of the laser on top of the few ns long ASE prepulse. We find that an early pulse enhances the generation of the x rays from a later pulse.
