Recent experimental results obtained with the picosecond laser system of the Ultrafast Science Laboratory University of Michigan are reported. In particular, laser absorption, keV X-ray spectroscopy and transport studies are presented. The measurements have been performed at both 1.06 micron and 0.53 microns laser wavelengths for intensities ranging from 10 to the 14th Wsq. cm. to 2 x 10 to the 15th Wsq. cm.
