A scheme for focusing relativistic electron beams has been proposed by use of a solid cone based upon two dimensional particle-in-cell simulations. We compare the transport of hot electrons, produced during the interaction of ultra-intense laser pulse with the targets, through the cone shape target and a flat target. It is found that relativistic electrons… CONTINUE READING
