Abstract

We have used a soft X-ray laser interferometer to study the collision and subsequent interaction of counter-streaming high-density plasmas. The measured density profiles show the evolution of the colliding plasmas from interpenetration, when the low-density edge of the plasmas first collide, to stagnation at the symmetry plane with density building at the symmetry plane.
