Schreiber, J.; Bolton, P. R. and Parodi, K. (2016): Invited Review Article: "Hands-on" laser-driven ion acceleration: A primer for laser-driven source development and potential applications. In: Review of Scientific instruments, Vol. 87, No. 7, 71101

Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


An overview of progress and typical yields from intense laser-plasma acceleration of ions is presented. The evolution of laser-driven ion acceleration at relativistic intensities ushers prospects for improved functionality and diverse applications which can represent a varied assortment of ion beam requirements. This mandates the development of the integrated laser-driven ion accelerator system, the multiple components of which are described. Relevant high field laser-plasma science and design of controlled optimum pulsed laser irradiation on target are dominant single shot (pulse) considerations with aspects that are appropriate to the emerging petawatt era. The pulse energy scaling of maximum ion energies and typical differential spectra obtained over the past two decades provide guidance for continued advancement of laser-driven energetic ion sources and their meaningful applications.
