Proton and ion acceleration via a laser-generated plasma from thin hydrogenated films is investigated at relatively low laser pulse intensity, on the order of . A time-of-flight technique is employed in order to measure the proton energy and the relative yield with respect to other ion species. Two ion collectors are employed in opposite directions to measure the mean ion energy and yield as a function of the thin-target geometry and composition. The proton kinetic energy and the emission yield… CONTINUE READING
