To simulate the interaction of high laser intensity with solid targets, we have used the 1D code FILM in which the collisional plasma absorption is calculated by solving the linear electromagnetic field for p and s polarization. For p-polarized light the collision frequency is adjusted so that the field in the critical region of the plasma never exceeds the maximum field allowed by the wave breaking limit. Energy transport by thermal conduction is described with the help of the delocalized heat flux theory. The ponderomotive force resulting from the huge filed is taken into account. The calculated temperatures and ion densities are used as an input to a time-dependent atomic physics code. Non-stationary ionization dynamics is demonstrated.
