The interaction of an extreme ultraviolet (EUV) laser beam with a parylene foil was
studied by experiments and simulation. A single EUV laser pulse of nanosecond
duration focused to an intensity of 3 × 1010 W cm−2 perforated micrometer thick
targets. The same laser pulse was simultaneously used to diagnose the interaction
by a transmission measurement. A combination of 2-dimensional radiation hydrodynamic and diffraction calculations was used to model the ablation, leading
to good agreement with experiment. This theoretical approach allows predictive
modelling of the interaction with matter of intense EUV beams over a broad
range of parameters.
