Hard X-rays from a Laser-Produced Plasma: Source Characterization and Applications

Gratz, Matthias (1996)
Abstract
Hard X-rays are generated by focusing 110 fs laser pulses onto solid metal targets, with intensities of about 1017 W·cm-2• Characteristic properties of this X-ray source are the small source size, the short pulse duration, the high brightness and a possibly interesting

spectral composition. Several characterizing measurements were performed, including source size, spectrum and temporal behavior. Time-gated imaging, one of the possible application of this source, was evaluated both experimentally and theoretically. Studies of laser ablation from differept targets were carried out.
