Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' MeV X-rays from laser-produced plasmas ' Summary form only given. Femtosecond laser pulses in the visible wavelength regime with peak powers of several TW are able to generate hot plasmas if they are focused onto a solid target. With flux intensities of more than 10/sup 19/ W/cm/sup 2/ for a duration of a few tens of femtoseconds electrons with relativistic energies of up to many MeV are produced. We present novel results on angular and spectral distribution of MeV x-rays from relativistic laser plasmas.
