Title Laminar shocks in high power laser plasma interactions
Abstract We propose a theory to describe laminar ion sound structures in a collisionless plasma. Re°ection of a small fraction of the upstream ions converts the well known ion acoustic soliton into a structure with a steep potential gradient upstream and with downstream oscillations. The theory provides a simple interpretation of results dating back more than forty years but, more importantly, is shown to provide an explanation for recent observations on laser produced plasmas relevant to inertial fusion and to ion acceleration.
