Harmonic Generation and Parametric Excitation of Waves in Laser Created Plasmas

  • J. L. Bobin


When focusing an Nd glass laser (frequency ωo) onto a cryogenic target (D2 or H2) quite intense lines with frequencies 2ωo, 3ω0/2, ω0/2 are found in the reflected light in both backward and 45° directions. The lines at 2ω0 and 3ω0/2 are broadened on the low frequency side only. The occurrence and broadening of such lines may be related to parametric excitation of waves.
