Title: Double-Pulse Laser-Driven Jets on OMEGA

Abstract

A double-pulse laser drive is used to create episodic supersonic plasma jets that propagate into a low density ambient medium. These are among the first laser experiments to generate pulsed outflow. Detailed comparisons between single- and double-pulsed jet rheology and shock structure are presented. 2-D hydrodynamic simulations are compared to the experimental radiographs.
