Plasma generated from collision of cluster beams
B. M. Smirnov

Institute for High Temperatures, 127412 Moscow, Russia

Abstract
Processes are analyzed in the course of production of a microplasma as a result of collision of two dense cluster beams. In reality, this microplasma is characterized by the lifetime of \sim 1 ns, by a size \sim 0.01 cm, by the number density of electrons \sim 10^{20} {\rm cm}^{-3}, by the electron temperature of several tens of eV, and by a charge of its multicharged ions up to z=10. Under contemporary conditions, the laser method allows one to create a hot microplasma with more high electron temperature and charge of atomic ions.
