Energy increase in multi-MeV ion acceleration in the interaction of a short pulse laser with a cluster-gas target.
An approach for accelerating ions, with the use of a cluster-gas target and an ultrashort pulse laser of 150-mJ energy and 40-fs duration, is presented. Ions with energy 10-20 MeV per nucleon having… Expand
Proton acceleration to 40 MeV using a high intensity, high contrast optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification/Ti:sapphire hybrid laser system.
Using a high-contrast (10(10):1) and high-intensity (10(21) W/cm(2)) laser pulse with the duration of 40 fs from an optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification/Ti:sapphire laser, a 40 MeV proton… Expand

We use a one-shot measurement technique to study effects of laser prepulses on the electron laser wakefield acceleration driven by relativistically intense laser pulses (lambda=790 nm, 11 TW, 37 fs)… Expand
Approaching the diffraction-limited, bandwidth-limited Petawatt.
J-KAREN-P is a high-power laser facility aiming at the highest beam quality and irradiance for performing state-of-the art experiments at the frontier of modern science. Here we approached the… Expand
Soft picosecond X-ray laser nanomodification of gold and aluminum surfaces
Experimental and theoretical investigations of aluminum (Al) and gold (Au) surface modification by soft X-ray laser pulse are presented. Well-polished samples of Al and Au are irradiated by… Expand
High energy negative ion generation by Coulomb implosion mechanism
Generation of high energy negative ions from laser plasmas by Coulomb implosion mechanism is investigated. When clusters or underdense plasmas are irradiated by an intense laser pulse, positive ions… Expand
Detection of radioactive isotopes by using laser Compton scattered γ-ray beams
Abstract Non-destructive detection and assay of nuclear materials is one of the most critical issues for both the management of nuclear waste and the non-proliferation of nuclear materials. We use… Expand
On the problems of relativistic laboratory astrophysics and fundamental physics with super powerful lasers
The ways toward modeling of astrophysical processes and extreme field regimes with super-power lasers are discussed. The main attention is paid to the problem of limited similarity in using the… Expand
Head-on injection of a high quality electron beam by the interaction of two laser pulses
High quality intense relativistic electron beams are generated by the interaction of two colliding laser pulses to inject plasma electrons into a wakefield excited by one of the laser pulses. The… Expand
