    By means of spatially resolved high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy, we have investigated the generation of fast ions at various laser installations with different flux densities and laser wavelengths. It is demonstrated that the fast ion generation in laser-produced plasma can be achieved for a...

    A theory is developed for calculating the charge composition of a cluster plasma produced upon irradiation of large atomic clusters by the field of a superatomic femtosecond laser pulse. The theory is based on the overbarrier process of a successive multiple internal ionization of atomic ions...

    A study is made of the interaction ("collision") between two identical laser pulses with lengths much shorter than the diffraction length, propagating in a plasma toward one another. It is shown that the plasma response to the pulses depends essentially on the value of the parameter...

    Abstract. The critical intensity inside plasma filaments generated in air by high-power, ultra-short laser pulses is estimated analytically and compared to recent experimental data. The result, I[sub crit] is approximately equal to 4 x 10[sup 13] W/cm[sup 2], is highly relevant for atmospheric...
