The LAPLAS experimental scheme (beam-target geometry) is shown in Fig. 1. It is a multi-layered target that consists of s solid cylinder of frozen hydrogen that is enclosed in a cylindrical shell of a high-Z material like Pb or Au. One face of this target is irradiated with an intense ion beam that has an annular focal spot whose dimensions are chosen in… CONTINUE READING
