Proton fast ignition (FI) of fusion targets [1] requires ps proton beams of PW power and of extremely high proton current densities (ji >10 12 A/cm 2 ) and proton beam intensities (Ii > 10 19 W/cm 2 ) [2, 3], which are not attainable at present even with the biggest conventional accelerators [4]. Potentially, such extreme proton beam parameters can be achieved using ballistic focusing of fast proton beams generated by the target normal sheath acceleration (TNSA) mechanism [5] driven by a short… CONTINUE READING
