In this contribution, we present the results of laser-target interaction studies with intensities ranging from the relativistic regime down to the intensities of dielectric breakdown of hydrogen. They were conducted using the cryogenic hydrogen jet platforms together with the high-resolution optical probing capabilities at the Draco laser facility at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf and the HiBEF facility at European XFEL. Changing the laser parameters enables to utilize specific plasma processes for controlled plasma density tailoring. These results, together with technical advancements of the target, pave the way towards a stable platform for near-critical density targets that will enable stable, repetition-rated proton sources for a multitude of applications at superb energies.
