Abstract

We used time-resolved shadowgraphy to characterize the pre-plasma formation in solid-target interaction experiments with micrometer-scale accuracy. We performed quantitative measurements of the plasma density for amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) levels ranging from 2·10−7 to 10−10 backed with 2-dimensional hydrodynamic simulations. We find that ASE levels above 10−9 are able to create a significant pre-plasma plume that features a plasma canal driving a self-focusing of the laser beam. For ASE levels of 10−10, no ASE pre-plasma could be detected.

Fig. 2 Temporal profile of the PHELIX laser pulse for various adjustments of the contrast boosting module from standard (green) to intermediate (red) and high (blue) contrast levels. In the insert, a photodiode measurement of the nanosecond pedestal.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 Shadow images: reference image before the shot (upper row) and on-shot shadowgraphy images at various instants before the main shot for the highest ASE level.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 Shadow size as a function of time. The zero delay corresponds to the maximum of the pulse intensity.
Fig. 5
Fig. 5 Simulated electron density profiles for 3 ASE levels at 2.5·1010 W/cm2, 1012 W/cm2 and 5·1013 W/cm2 (left to right).
Fig. 6
Fig. 6 Experimental (picture) and simulated (yellow line) plasma shadow extension for an ASE intensity of 5·1013 W/cm2. The dotted line shows the target position and the laser comes from the right.
Fig. 7
Fig. 7 Self-focusing of the ASE beam. The laser comes from the right and the background describes the index of refraction of the pre-plasma. Without plasma (yellow line), the beam focuses to a 3.4 μm waist, which is being reduced to 2.6 μm when the pre-plasma is considered.
