ARCNL one step closer to Extreme Ultraviolet light (EUV)
ARCNL researchers recently generated plasma in the ARCNL extreme ultraviolet (EUV) generating source.
The researchers used a powerful laser beam to hit a number of small indium-tin droplets turning them into a vapour. ARCNL postdoc Oscar Versolato reports, “we are now only a small step away from realizing a fully functioning model source”. This achievement forms the basis for future studies in the EUV Plasma Dynamics group.
The movie shows how a small droplet (bright, white spot) turns into a much bigger pancake shape of molten metal, after it has been hit from the right by the infrared laser.
