Characterisation and Applications of Hard X-Rays from a Laser-Produced Plasma Source

Forskningsoutput: AvhandlingLicentiatavhandling

Abstract

Ultra-short X-ray pulses are generated by focusing 150 fs laser pulses with an energy
of 200 mJ onto metal targets. Focal intensities are expected to reach 1018 WI cm2• An
efficient X-ray source has been developed. This X-ray source has been characterised,
with an emphasis on photon energies above 10 keV. Measurements of the spectral
distribution of X-rays, the overall X-ray yield and the spatial extent of the source have
been made. Imaging applications have been demonstrated. Ablation phenomena and
biological effects of ultra-intense X-ray pulses have been investigated.
