Description

This item from - IEEE Conference - 2013 Conference on Lasers & Electro-Optics Europe & International Quantum Electronics Conference CLEO EUROPE/IQEC - The Project LILIAfl] (ligth ions laser induced acceleration) is an experiment now running at LNF (Frascati) with the goal of producing a real proton beam able to be driven for significant distances (50–75 cm) away from the interaction point and which will act as a source for further accelerating structures. In this paper we report the description of the experimental set-up and the very preliminary results of the laser interaction with a spécifie target. The goal consists on the study of the correlation of the maximum TNSA (target normal shift acceleration) accelerated proton energy with respect to the following parameters: • Laser pulse intensity (in the range 1018 − 5×1019 W/cm2) • Laser pulse energy (in the range 0.1–5 J) • Laser pulse length (in the range 25 fs- lps) • Metallic target thickness (in the range 1–10 microns).
