The investigation of the generation of very strong shocks (initial pressures larger than 100 Mbar) [1,2] in solid density matter is important for developing a platform for diagnosing matter in extreme pressure conditions which are relevant for shock ignition conditions [3,4]. Here we report an experimental campaign, performed at the CLPU VEGA – II laser facility, and LOA Palaiseau focused on studying the dynamics of shock produced by fs-laser via the energy deposition from hot electrons generated in laser-matter interactions. Due to the short laser pulse duration, pressure is not maintained in time and the shock takes the form of a blast wave.

In presented experiments, solid-density targets of aluminum and CH of various thicknesses were irradiated by the fs-lasers and a full characterization of the blast wave formation and propagation was performed using several diagnostics. X-ray emission was detected by using a bremsstrahlung cannon and Kirkpatrick-Baez. Together with electron spectrometers they provided information about hot electron temperature. Optical diagnostics (shock chronometry [5]) provided information on the propagation of the blast wave in solids. Doppler reflectometry [6] provided information on the state of the target rear surface.

The preliminary analysis of experimental results confirms the generation of a blast wave which is initially very strong and very rapidly decaying in time, confirming the estimations predicted by radiation magnetohydrodynamic, hybrid Vlasov-Fokker-Planck and particle-in-cell simulations.
