High flux, beamed neutron sources employing deuteron-rich ion beams from D 2 O-ice layered targets

Abstract:

A forwardly-peaked bright neutron source was produced using a laser-driven, deuteron-rich ion beam in a pitcher-catcher scenario. A proton-free ion source was produced via target normal sheath acceleration from Au foils having a thin layer of D2O ice at the rear side, irradiated by sub-petawatt laser pulses (∼200 J, ∼750 fs) at peak intensity . The neutrons were preferentially produced in a beam of ∼70 FWHM cone along the ion beam forward direction, with maximum energy up to ∼40 MeV and a pea...
