Process of counterstreaming plasma generation for laser irradiation of the innner-surface of the first plane of a double-plane target is investigated. The image taken by streaked self-emission optical pyrometer and radiation hydrodynamic simulation show the plasma from the second plane is ablated by radiation almost at the laser timing. After ∼5ns, increase in brightness and the generation of a plasma on the second plane are observed. According to the contemporary measurement of streaked interferometry, this is caused by the ablation of the second plane by the first plane plasma.
