    Periodical short pulse trains were observed in a long pulse, low current, low voltage waveguide mode free-electron laser. The pulse width and the pulse train intervals of the periodical short pulse trains were about a few ns and about 23 ns, respectively. These pulse trains can be explained as...

    When a rippled surface of a planar target is irradiated with a short (subnanosecond) laser pulse, the shock wave launched into the target and the mass distribution of the shocked plasma will oscillate. These oscillations are found to be surprisingly strong compared, for example, to the case when...
