Abstract:

A LASER MICROPROBE FOR ANALYZING LASER PRODUCED MATERIAL BLOWOFF FROM BULK MATERIALS IS TO BE DEVELOPED. MOST WORK ON LASER-TARGET AND LASER-SURFACE INTERACTIONS HAS CONCENTRATED ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF DIAGNOSTICS AND PROBES FOR MEASURING PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF THE PLASMA PRODUCED FROM PELLETS, THIN FILM TARGETS, AND BULK MATERIALS. LITTLE WORK HAS BEEN DONE TO ANALYZE THE MATERIAL BLOWOFF. WE SHALL STUDY THIS IN FURTHER DETAIL IN ORDER TO HELP DETERMINE THE "MECHANISMS BY WHICH THE DIRECTED ENERGY EFFECTS ACTUALLY INTERACT WITH TARGET MARTERIALS." DURING PHASE I WE WILL DETERMINE THE REQUIREMENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS OF THE LASER PROBE. STATE OF THE ART TECHNIQUES IN PICOSECOND RANGING AND GATING WILL BE REVIEWED AND A SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED. THE PROBING TECHNIQUE WILL ALLOW THE STUDY AND COMPARISON OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE BLOWOFF FROM VARIOUS MATERIALS WITH DIFFERENT ABLATING LASERS OR OTHER SOURCES OF DIRECTED ENERGY.
