In this paper we present the first observation of ion correlation effects in a dense plasma. A range of experiments has been carried out at the SERC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK, using their high power laser system (VULCAN) for shock compression and heating of thin aluminium foil targets. The plasma is produced in aluminium Ising a colliding shock technique. Short range order within the plasma is observed using the Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (EXAFS) spectrum of the aluminium K absorption edge. Densities ≈2X solid density have been measured from the EXAFS spectrum. These results are in reasonable agreement with the computer predictions.
