The results of the investigations of ion emission from targets of medium and high atomic numbers irradiated by 1 ps laser pulse of intensity up to 5x10[sup 16] W/cm[sup 2] are presented. The generation of high energy (up to 1 MeV) highly charged heavy ions (Ta[sup +38], Au[sup +33]), as well as Ar-like Ag ions and fully striped Al ions is demonstrated. Some properties of ion fluxes emitted from picosecond laser-produced high-z plasmas are determined. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
