Self-focusing effects, induced by ASTERIX pulsed laser at PALS Laboratory of Prague, have been investigated. Laser was employed at the third harmonics (438 nm) and intensities of the order of 10^16 W/cm^2. Pure Au was used as thin target and irradiated with 308 incidence angle. An ion energy analyzer was employed to detect the energy-to-mass ratio of emitted ions from plasma. Measurements were performed by changing the focal point position with a high spatial resolution stepmotor. Results demonstrated that non linear processes, due to self-focusing effects, occurs when the laser beam is focused at about 200 mm in front of the target surface.

Abstract

Self-focusing effects, induced by ASTERIX pulsed laser at PALS Laboratory of Prague, have been investigated. Laser was employed at the third harmonics (438 nm) and intensities of the order of 10^16 W/cm^2. Pure Au was used as thin target and irradiated with 308 incidence angle. An ion energy analyzer was employed to detect the energy-to-mass ratio of emitted ions from plasma. Measurements were performed by changing the focal point position with a high spatial resolution stepmotor. Results demonstrated that non linear processes, due to self-focusing effects, occurs when the laser beam is focused at about 200 mm in front of the target surface. In such conditions, a new ion group, having high charge state and kinetic energy, is produced because of the increment in temperature of the laser-generated plasma.
