Time-resolved probe interferometry was used to obtain complete density mapping of laser produced plasmas. The plasma was produced by symmetrical irradiation of thin targets, to be used for short pulse delayed interaction experiments. The progress in the plasma characterization due to the use of a picosecond pulse probe is reported, and the relative merits of different target designs are also discussed. The two-dimensional density maps obtained appear to be in substantial agreement with two-dimensional hydrodynamic code predictions.
