Title: Study of Boron and Molybdenum Plasmas on Multipulse Interaction of Femtosecond Radiation with a Target

Abstract

Laser plasmas generated by femtosecond radiation on the surface of boron and molybdenum targets are investigated by the shadowgraph method. The modes of single-pulse and multipulse interaction of laser radiation with a target are compared. The occurrence of plasma bullets is discussed, which were observed on both single-pulse and multipulse interaction with the same area of a target. The wavefront velocities of expanding boron and molybdenum plasmas were measured to be 5 x 10{sup 4} and 6 x 10{sup 3} m s{sup -1}, respectively. The electron density measured by interferometry using a time delay of 800 ps in a boron plasma excited by 795-nm radiation with an intensity of 10{sup 16} W cm{sup -2} amounted to 8 x 10{sup 19} cm{sup -3}. The correlation between some specific features of the plasma and the generation of the 3/2 harmonic, observed on multipulse interaction of femtosecond radiation with a boron target, is discussed.
