Paper Abstract

The interaction of an intense (1015 less than I less than 1017 W/cm2) subpicosecond (0.1 less than t less than 0.5 ps) normally incident laser pulses with solid targets is investigated. Target material heating, redistribution of the absorbed energy in the target, plasma creation and shock wave generation are investigated.
