We present results of a theoretical study of the radiative opacity characteristics of plasmas produced by indirect heating of porous carbohydrate (CHO) substances (foams) by laser pulses. The plasma targets are created for further interaction with heavy-ion beams. We consider two different foam substances, namely, cellulose triacetate (TAC, C12H16O8) and TAC with a small admixture of gold. We discuss important features of the theoretical model, known as the ion model (IM) of plasma, which is used to study the radiative opacity characteristics of complex plasma compositions. Also we study the influence of a small admixture of gold on the radiative opacity characteristics and gas-dynamic processes in the plasma.
