Abstract
High-resolution X-Ray spectromicroscopy methods were used for investigations of fs laser interaction with N2O cluster media. Elongated (up to 8.5 mm) femtosecond laser self-channeling in N2O cluster media under sufficiently low laser intensity (0.5-4x1017 W/cm2) was observed. Results are revealing a strong macroscopic effect on laser beams owing to their interaction with a gas of clusters. This has occurred at moderate pulse intensities, so the effect is unrelated to either relativistic self-focusing or ponderomotive filamentation. Enough homogeneous multicharged ions plasma with bulk electron temperature around 100 eV was observed along the plasma channel. The spectral lines shapes of the H- and He-like Oxygen ions demonstrated the presence of strong "blue wings", which are caused by Doppler-shifted lines radiation from the essential fraction of ions (~10-2 - 10-3) with energies 0.1 - 1.5 MeV. The slope of Doppler-shifted lines radiation is good approximated by ~300 KeV ion temperatures.
