Laser-accelerated ions and their applications

Abstract:

Since the first studies of target-normal sheath acceleration around the year 2000, production of energetic ion beams from intense laser-matter interactions has been investigated in great depth. New acceleration mechanisms such as radiation pressure acceleration, collisionless shock acceleration, the hybrid breakout afterburner mechanism, and special regimes such as light-sail radiation pressure acceleration have been discovered and demonstrated. Applications of ion beams produced by these mec...
