Abstract

The plasma mirror effect is demonstrated by the KrF laser for the first time. It is shown that plasma reflectivity starts to increase at the plasma threshold of 1012W/cm2 and it saturates at 10 14W/cm2 with ∼35% reflectivity. Vacuum ultraviolet spectroscopy of laser plasmas on low-Z material shows that the optimum reflectivity conditions are reached at plasma temperatures of 20-25eV.
