Abstract

The spectral irradiance of laser-produced plasmas of gadolinium and ytterbium have been determined in the 115–220-nm range for an incident 2.2-J, 30-nsec ruby-laser pulse. The effects of target geometry and variation of laser energy on the spectral irradiance were also studied. The potential of the source as a radiometric standard is discussed.
