Author Affiliations +
The ionization dynamics of plasma, created on the surface of solid-state target irradiated by high power sub-picosecond laser pulses, is studied. the laser energy absorption, heating, expansion and ionization of the target matter are taken into account self-consistently. We have employed and compared two different models of ionization: quasistationary model and non-stationary model of average ion. Next, we have demonstrated the influence of ionization processes on plasma dynamics.
