Abstract
Ablative acceleration properties of laser-driven foil plates (Al, 10 and 18 micrometer-thick and 1 to approximately 2 mm in diameter) have been studied experimentally at laser irradiance from 30 to 400 GW/cm2. Push-pull type VISAR (Velocity Interferometer System for Any Reflector) was utilized for the measurement, but an optical recording system was developed to provide sub-nanosecond time resolution. For the 18 micrometer- thick Al foil irradiated at 360 GW/cm2, ablative accelerations up to terminal velocity of about 10 km/s within 30 ns has been determined with a velocity uncertainty of approximately 2%. The acceleration rate detected in the experiments is (0.2 to approximately 0.6)X 1012 m/s2, which is about 1011 times of the acceleration by the gravity.
