Paper Abstract

Simulations of laser matter interaction at intermediate energies is a key issue in predicting and quantifying laser damage in the LMJ or the NIF facilities. We have done simulations of laser interaction with several metals from the solid state to the plasma by solving the Helmholtz equation in our hydrodynamic code DELPOR. We are comparing our result to time dependent reflectivity measurements on Aluminum and Iron and discuss the influence of the transitions of phase of the materials in laser mater interaction.
