Paper Abstract

The influence of a static electric field on the X-ray plasma emission induced by a picosecond NdYag laser on a Au target has been investigated. The X-ray emisson of the plasma, created by focusing the laser beam down to an intensity of 1014 W/cm2, lies in the region of 1-20keV and was studied as a function of the applied static electric field. A significant increase of the intensity of the X-ray emission is observed at high electric fields (20kV/cm).
