Theory of Atoms in Dense Plasmas

High-charge ions are easily produced in the laboratory by intense pulsed laser radiation. With laser intensities of 1013 to 1015 Watt/cm2, the surface of a solid target is heated to temperatures of 200 to 1000 eV and the target material is strongly ionized (Fig. 1). The ions are identified by their x-ray line emission. Neon-like and nickel-like ions are easily produced and identified because they have closed-shell configurations.
