Energetic 8-nsec laser pulses were focused on Al, Au, and Cu foils ranging in thickness from 0.1 to 9 [mu]m. The transmitted laser light was recorded and the plasma expansion from the front and back surfaces of these foils was measured using Thomson parabola and Faraday cup diagnostics. Comparison o ...
