Laser-driven proton acceleration from a solid hydrogen ribbon
Kraft, S.;
In the last years, more and more high repetition rate ultrahigh power lasers are build. In order to use the novel capabilities in applications with laser accelerated ion beams, new target types have to be developed. These targets have to fulfil two conditions: they have to stand several hundreds or even thousands of shots and produce as less debris as possible in order to spare the expensive optics. Promising candidates are pure hydrogen targets.
Here we report on experiments with a solid hydrogen ribbon performed at the ELFIE facility in France and compare the results to shots on normal metal and plastic foils.
