    X-ray spectra from Teflon targets irradiated by laser pulses with a duration of 60 fs to 1 ps have been investigated experimentally. It is shown that, when the contrast of the laser pulse is sufficiently low, the effect of self-focusing of the main laser pulse in the plasma produced by the...

    We report an experimental study on the optimization of a laser plasma based x-ray source of ultra-short duration K-a line radiation. The interaction of pulses from a CPA based Ti:sapphire laser (10 TW, 45 fs, 10 Hz) system with magnesium, titanium, iron and copper solid target generates bright...

P.; Kamperidis, C.; Najmudin, Z.; Persson, A.; Schreiber, J.; Wojda, F.; Wahlström, C.-G. // Applied Physics Letters;11/2/2009, Vol. 95 Issue 18, p181106 

    By tailoring the wavefront of the laser pulse used in a laser-wakefield accelerator, we show that the properties of the x-rays produced due to the electron beam’s betatron oscillations in the plasma can be controlled. By creating a wavefront with coma, we find that the critical energy of...

    X-ray betatron radiation is produced by oscillations of electrons in the intense focusing field of a laser-plasma accelerator. These hard x-rays show promise for use in femtosecond-scale time-resolved radiography of ultrafast processes. However, the spectral characteristics of betatron radiation...

    The generalized method of Backus and Gilbert (BG) is described and applied to the inverse problem of obtaining the spectrum from a five-channel, filtered array of x-ray detectors. This diagnostic is routinely fielded on the Z facility at Sandia National Laboratories to study soft x-ray photons...

    We illustrate the informational content and different aspects of resonant elastic and inelastic X-ray emission spectroscopy of free molecules by reviewing results from recent ab initio calculations. We let each molecule, or group of molecules, represent one particular aspect: calculations on...
