We have developed an integrated Laser Ablation Fluid RAdiation simulation Code (LAFRAC) to estimate the behaviors of highly energetic ions and neutral particles from LPP EUV light sources, and estimated recombination and charge transfer processes between the particles from laser-produced Xe EUV light sources. We clarify that charge transfer effects greatly affect on the number density of neutral particles, especially high energy ( more than roughly 500 eV ) neutral particles.
