Paper Abstract

For purposes of characterizing and studying the formation and evolution of laser driven plasmas in fusion research, a method has been developed to optically probe the plasmas and produce a sequence of four or more holographic time resolved image frames at equivalent rates to 20 billion/sec. The plasma UV probe operates at 0.26 tim either in a shadowgraphic or interferometric mode. Electron density contours between - 1019 and 1021 cm-3 are obtained from the interferograms.
