  • Proton Acceleration to Therapeutic Energies with Ultra-Intense Ultra-Clean and Ultra-Short Laser Pulses. Reed, S. A.; Bulanov, S. S.; Chvykov, V.; Brantov, A.; Bychenkov, V. Yu.; Kalinchenko, G.; Matsuoka, T.; Rousseau, P.; Yanovsky, V.; Litzenberg, D. W.; Maksimchuk, A. // AIP Conference Proceedings;2006, Vol. 877 Issue 1, p430 

    The acceleration of protons to therapeutic energies of over 200 MeV by short-pulse, high-intensity lasers requires very high temporal intensity contrast. We describe improvements to the contrast ratio of the laser pulse produced by a multi-terawatt chirped pulsed amplification (CPA) Ti:sapphire...

  • Dominant front-side acceleration of energetic proton beams from plastic targets irradiated by an ultraintense laser pulse. Lee, K.; Lee, J. Y.; Park, S. H.; Cha, Y.-H.; Lee, Y. W.; Kim, K. N.; Jeong, Y. U. // Physics of Plasmas;Jan2011, Vol. 18 Issue 1, p013101 

    An experimental observation has been made by using aluminum-coated Mylar foils, which strongly supports that in the case of plastic target, the energetic part of the proton beam originates from the front-side of the target. When a 30 fs laser pulse with an intensity of 1.6×1019 W/cm2 was...

    We report stable laser-driven proton beam acceleration from ultrathin foils consisting of two ion species: heavier carbon ions and lighter protons. Multidimensional particle-in-cell simulations show that the radiation pressure leads to very fast and complete spatial separation of the species....

  • Theoretical Understanding of Enhanced Proton Energies from Laser-Cone Interactions. Kluge, T.; Gaillard, S. A.; Bussmann, M.; Flippo, K. A.; Burris-Mog, T.; Gall, B.; Geissel, M.; Kraft, S. D.; Lockard, T.; Metzkes, J.; Offermann, D. T.; Rassuchine, J.; Schollmeier, M.; Schramm, U.; Sentoku, Y.; Zeil, K.; Cowan, T. E. // AIP Conference Proceedings;11/5/2010, Vol. 1299 Issue 1, p715 

    For the past ten years, the highest proton energies accelerated with high-intensity lasers was 58 MeV, observed in 2000 at the LLNL NOVA Petawatt laser, using flat foil targets. Recently, 67.5 MeV protons were observed in experiments at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Trident laser,...

    The drive for higher beam power, high duty cycle, and reliable beams at reasonable cost has focused international attention and design effort on fixed field accelerators, notably Fixed-Field Alternating Gradient accelerators (FFAGs). High-intensity GeV proton drivers encounter duty cycle and...

  • Update of Proton Driven Plasma Wakefield Acceleration. Xia, G.; Caldwell, A.; Lotov, K.; Pukhov, A.; Kumar, N.; An, W.; Lu, W.; Mori, W. B.; Joshi, C.; Huang, C.; Muggli, P.; Assmann, R.; Zimmermann, F. // AIP Conference Proceedings;11/5/2010, Vol. 1299 Issue 1, p510 

    In this paper, the update of proton driven plasma wakefield acceleration (PDPWA) is given. After a brief introduction to the scheme of PDPWA, a future demonstration experiment is discussed. The particle-in-cell simulation results based on the realistic proton beams from the CERN Super Proton...

    A new method for seeding the modulation instability (MI) within an SPS-LHC proton beam using a laser pulse is presented. Using simulations, we show that a laser pulse placed ahead of a proton beam excites axially symmetric selfmodulation modes within the proton beam and leads to peak...

  • Increased laser-accelerated proton energies via direct laser-light-pressure acceleration of electrons in microcone targets. Gaillard, S. A.; Kluge, T.; Flippo, K.

    We present experimental results showing a laser-accelerated proton beam maximum energy cutoff of 67.5 MeV, with more than 5 × 106 protons per MeV at that energy, using flat-top hollow microcone targets. This result was obtained with a modest laser energy of ∼80 J, on the high-contrast...

A. // Physics of Plasmas;Jan2011, Vol. 18 Issue 1, p012704 

    An experiment was done at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (Vulcan laser petawatt laser) to study fast electron propagation in cylindrically compressed targets, a subject of interest for fast ignition. This was performed in the framework of the experimental road map of HiPER (the European high...
