Characterisation and Applications of Hard X-Rays from a Laser-Produced Plasma Source

Tillman, Carl (1995)
Abstract
Ultra-short X-ray pulses are generated by focusing 150 fs laser pulses with an energy

of 200 mJ onto metal targets. Focal intensities are expected to reach 1018 WI cm2• An

efficient X-ray source has been developed. This X-ray source has been characterised,

with an emphasis on photon energies above 10 keV. Measurements of the spectral

distribution of X-rays, the overall X-ray yield and the spatial extent of the source have

been made. Imaging applications have been demonstrated. Ablation phenomena and

biological effects of ultra-intense X-ray pulses have been investigated.
