Radiological characterisation of photon radiation from ultra-high-intensity laser-plasma and nuclear interactions.

Abstract:

With the increasing number of multi-terawatt (10(12) W) and petawatt (10(15) W) laser interaction facilities being built, the need for a detailed understanding of the potential radiological hazards is required and their impact on personnel is of major concern. Experiments at a number of facilities are being undertaken to achieve this aim. This paper describes the recent work completed on the Vulcan petawatt laser system at the CCLRC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, where photon doses of up to ...
