Paper Abstract

We present calculations on X-UV refraction through a laser-created plasma. We propose to study the overcritical zones of a laser-created plasma on plane target. The work consists in probing the laser created plasma by an X-UV radiation (100 - 200 angstrom) and in deducing the refraction through the plasma of a collimated probe beam. Experiment images can demonstrate how inhomogeneities in laser deposition propagate to the ablation front of the laser plasma. The use of computer simulations to reproduce the X-UV images can characterize completely the plasma i.e., its density and its temperature profiles inside the probed layer.
