Abstract
Irradiation of dense matter by pulsed laser beams with the ultimate goal of achieving thermonuclear fusion conditions provides a challenge to high-speed diagnostics. The concentrated deposition of energy by laser pulses of typically nanosecond duration induces laser-plasma interaction phenomena and hydrodynamic motion which have to be diagnosed on a picosecond temporal and micrometre spatial scale. The high-speed diagnostics developed for this purpose, such as shadowgraphy and interferometry by probe laser beams in the visible, x-ray backlighting, time-resolved spectroscopy in the soft x-ray region, and x-ray framing, will be described and illustrated by experimental results.
