Fig. 4: Time-resolved spectrally integrated emission and corresponding ion populations of laser targets.

From: Time evolution of transient plasma states from nanowire arrays irradiated at relativistic intensities

Fig. 4

a The spectrally integrated emission from the primary emission complexes for 400 and 1000 nm diameter nanowire, and flat Ni targets. b Extracted FLYCHK ion populations for high-lying charge states, showing a late-time jump in highly charged ions for the nanowire targets when neighbouring wires collide—a feature not seen in the raw time-resolved emission. Bands on the data represent the ion-population-weighted standard deviation of the ensemble fit to the time-resolved spectral data.
