Control of Ion-Velocity Distributions in Laser-Target Interaction Experiments.
MISSION RESEARCH CORP ALBUQUERQUE NM
Pagination or Media Count:
The width of ion velocity distributions from laser produced plasmas can be controlled experimentally by varying the size of the laser spot. The ion velocity width is determined primarily by whether the ions are mostly in the rarefraction or steady state regime. It is not dominated by the thermal distribution of the ions, as is often assumed. Keywords Laser fusion Plasma Fusion Laser plasma interactions Ions Ablation.
