Abstract:

A two-dimensional code has been written to study the optical interactions of laser beams with preformed plasmas. Specifically, simulations of CO2 and ruby lasers beams incident upon the plasmas of exploding wires have been accomplished for different beam configurations to find the optimum configuration for plasma heating.
