Paper Abstract

It was demonstrated experimentally that liquid with low pressure of saturated vapor can be used as target for femtosecond laser plasma formation. Plasma formed at free liquid surface (vacuum oil) in vacuum by femtosecond laser pulse with intensity above 1016 W/cm2 is similar to high-temperature plasma formed at solid target surface. So, from x-ray and ionic time-of-flight measurements the temperature of hot electrons for oil target is 6 ± 3 keV and for crystalline silicon target is 4 ± 1 keV. The optics diagnostic of liquid surface relaxation has shown that upper repetition rate of laser pulses for interaction with non-perturbed liquid surface is 10 Hz.
