Computer Modeling of Laser Created Plasmas and EUV Lasers

Abstract: This presentation will discuss several computer models developed to simulate laser created plasmas and Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) lasers. These lasers occur in dense hot plasmas that are generated by intense visible lasers. A discussion of the physics of these plasmas and the resulting lasers will be presented with comparisons between the computer simulations and the experimental results.
