Title: Temperature and electron density measurements on laser driven radiative shocks

Abstract

In this paper, new results on radiative shocks generated by a high power laser in a xenon gas cell are presented. Several shock parameters were measured: temperature, radial expansion and velocity, as well as the electron density in the radiative precursor and its velocity. Multiple laser shot allowed the investigation of physical trends changing initial conditions (laser energy and initial gas pressure). Results are compared with one- and two-dimensional radiative hydrodynamic simulations. The experiments were carried out at the LULI Laboratory.
