Paper Abstract

The absorption of intense laser light in plasmas with a long density scale length can be influenced by many different processes, ranging from collisional absorption to laser-driven instabilities. The mix of these coupling processes depends strongly on the collisionality of the plasma. Optimum coupling is obtained by the use of short wavelength laser light.
