Paper Abstract

We measured laser channeling into an overdense plasma by using a 19.6 nm Ne-like Ge XUV laser. One micrometer/100 ps laser light at 1017 W/cm2 interacted with a long scale length plasma preformed on a CH slab target. Grid image refractometry (GIR) with the x-ray laser was applied to obtain the deflection information in the plasma, which provided two dimensional density profiles (2-D) of the overdense plasmas.
