Paper Abstract

The formation of an elongated laser spark in a high density gas puff target has been studied experimentally using 10 J 1.5 ns Nd:glass laser pulses. The laser sparks were created by focusing the laser beam on the gas puff targets with a spherical lens or an axicon. The spark was characterized using an imaging system with CCD camera and a grazing incidence grating x-ray spectrometer. Propagation of the second laser pulse of 1.5 ns time duration along the spark plasma was also studied.
