Edwards, M. H., Whittaker, D. S., Tallents, G. J., Mistry, P., Pert, G. J., Rus, B., Mocek, T., Kozlová, M., Polan, J., Praeg, A., Stupka, M. and Homer, P. (2007) Laser ablation rates measured using x-ray laser transmission. Physical Review Letters, 99 (19). pp. 195002-1. ISSN 1079-7114
The rate of laser ablation at irradiances of ~2×1014 W cm-2 of solid iron has been measured using the transmission of a neonlike zinc x-ray laser at 21.2 nm through thin iron targets. Ablated iron becomes transparent to the x-ray laser flux, enabling the thickness of unablated material and hence the rate of ablation to be measured from time resolved x-ray laser transmission.
