Abstract

We report the experimental results of a plasma jet formation in counterstreaming plasmas created by irradiating a double CH-plane target with a high-power laser system. The time evolution of the jet collimation was obtained over several shots, each shot taking a shadowgraphy image at a different timing. Since no jet formation was observed when a single CH-plane target was irradiated, the presence of the counterstreaming plasma, as an ambient plasma, is essential to the jet plasma collimation.
