Experimental Test of Resonant Absorption Theory Progress Report: July-September 1979

Description: The scaling of the hot electron temperature, T/sub h/, with laser intensity, I, has been studied with the laser-shockfront interaction apparatus. The preliminary result for 500 psec laser pulses of intensity I approx. 10/sup 14/ W/cm/sup 2/ is T/sub h/ infinity I/sup ..cap alpha../, where ..cap alpha.. = .35 to .40.

Experimental Test of Resonant Absorption Theory Progress Report: October-December 1979

Description: The laser-shockfront interaction experiment has been performed using the 100 psec FWHM pulses available from our newly installed high-pressure laser amplifier. The interaction time is so short that the hydrodynamic expansion which distinguishes H/sub 2/ targets from D/sub 2/ is absent. Good experimental reproducibility results.
