Dynamics Behaviors of a Laser Produced Plasma: Theoretical Approach


Assuming that plasma particles are moving on continuous and non-differentiable curves, some dynamic properties in plasma ablation are analyzed via scale-relativity theory: the splitting of plasma plume, multi-peak structures, at various distances from the target surface and plasma oscillations through self-similarity. Our theoretical results are in good agreement with the experimental ones.
