Paper Abstract

We present improved experimental results of measurements of ion correlation effects in a dense plasma. The EXAFS technique was used to observe the short range order within a dense plasma produced by colliding laser-induced shock waves. Densities about three times solid density have been measured. An estimate of the temperature during compression and subsequent heating of plasma is made using published mcdels and an approximate agreement obtained with NEDUSA on-dimensional fluid code predictions.
