Abstract : Recent experimental results obtained with the picosecond laser system of the Ultrafast Science Laboratory (University of Michigan) are reported. In particular, laser absorption, keV X-ray spectroscopy and transport studies are presented. The measurements have been performed at both 1.06 micron and 0.53 microns laser wavelengths for intensities ranging from 10 to the 14th W/sq. cm. to 2 x 10 to the 15th W/sq. cm.
