Paper Abstract

Femtosecond laser-produced plasma are bright ultrafast x-ray sources. Since the short x-ray pulses from such plasmas are synchronized to laser pulses, femtosecond laser-produced plasmas are important sources to probe the ultrafast response of optically excited materials. Conversion efficiency has to be improved so that laser-produced parameters, as a prepulse, one can improve x-ray emissions from laser-produced plasma. We report here the result of experimental and theoretical investigations of the line x- ray emissions form aluminum plasma created by a pair of femtosecond laser pulses in order to show the optimum energy conversion into selected x-ray lines.
