Intensity regimes for laser-plasma-acceleration of protons are compared and typical features of the accelerated proton bunch are described. The laser, target and the abruptly induced plasma environment represent the ion source component of the Integrated Laser-driven Ion Accelerator System (ILDIAS). ILDIAS components are defined and some of their key challenges are described. Some requirements of Laser-driven Ion Beam Radiotherapy (L-IBRT) are discussed in terms of proton beam characteristics, beam delivery control and ILDIAS machine performance. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V.
