Abstract

Particles are sometimes emitted during the ablation of the metal targets used for laser pumped coherent and incoherent light sources. These particles have a significant effect on the absorption efficiency of the laser, on the density and temperature distribution of the plasmas, and thus on the performance of the source. We propose a simulation model of the particle emission based on Lagrangian hydrodynamics taking the liquid-to-gas transition into account using a dynamic mesh reorganization technique.
