Abstract
High-density plasmas created near a solid surface by a femtosecond laser pulse emit ultrashort x-ray pulses that are synchronized to the laser pulse. The spectral and temporal properties of x-rays emitted from a femtosecond laser-produced on metal surface are shown. The minimum pulse duration was less than 3 ps. More than a 30-fold enhancement of soft x-ray emission was achieved by fabricating an array of nanoholes on an alumina surface. Utilizing a 10-ps soft x-ray pulse, we demonstrated time-resolved soft x-ray absorption measurement of optically excited silicon near its LII,III edge. We found that a laser pulse irradiation caused a more than 10% increase in soft x-ray absorption near the edge, which recovered within 20 ps.
