Title: Optical Time-Resolved Diagnostics of Laser-Produced Plasmas

Abstract

Here we present the general challenges of diagnostics for laser-produced plasmas related to their small dimensions and short duration but also to the presence of very strong temperature and density gradient in the plasma. In particular, we focus on more detailed examples related to optical diagnostics for the undercritical region of the plasma: shadowgraphy, schlieren, interferometry, polarimetry.
