New Regime of Thomson Scattering: Probing Dense Plasmas with X-Ray Lasers

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In this paper the authors demonstrate through calculations and theoretical analysis the first application of a x-ray laser for probing hot, high-density plasmas (n{sub e} {ge} 10{sup 23} cm{sup -3}) using a Ni-like transient collisional excitation x-ray laser as a probe. Theoretical predictions are used to diagnose the electron temperature in short pulse (500 fs) laser produced plasmas. The threshold power of the x-ray probe is estimated by comparing theoretical scattering levels with plasma thermal emission. The necessary spectral resolution of the instrument sufficient for resolving electron temperature is given.
