Probing ultrafast, transient plasma dynamics at solid density with X-ray lasers
Bussmann, M.; Kluge, T.; Huang, L.; Cowan, T. E.; Chung, H.-K.;
Combining high power lasers with x-ray lasers provides unique opportunities to study ultrafast, transient processes in solid-density plasmas. We present simulation studies of probing ionization dynamics, electron transport and heating of solid-density targets driven by high power lasers with state-of-the-art X-ray lasers. We show that a precise understanding of the underlying atomic physics processes is necessary and needs to be implemented in kinetic simulations of the laser plasma interaction. Our results show that albeit the complexity of atomic processes happening during the laser plasma interaction, the very same processes can be exploited to understand the temporal evolution of the plasma.
