Abstract

Plasma produced from ultraviolet-transmitting solid targets undergoing intense (>1016 W/cm2) subpicosecond (∼600 fs) ultraviolet (248 nm) irradiation have been studied under conditions for which no interfering prepulse plasma is generated. Time and spatially integrated measurements of the x-ray emission for H-like and He-like Mg and Si were found to be consistent with lasnex calculations that model the laser-target interaction.
