52. Ultra-intense X-rays in PW laser plasma - generation, transport and application to study radiation dominated and warm dense matter
Dr Sergey Pikuz (JIHT RAS)
In experiments with pico- and femtosecond optical laser pulses of relativistic intensities exceeding 1021 W/cm2 the laser energy is efficiently converted to X-ray radiation, which is emitted by hot electron component in collisionless processes. In turn, the intense X-ray radiation effectively ionizes the matter inside out, providing a large population of exotic states called hollow ions, and...
15. Characterization of intense electromagnetic fields in the radiofrequency-microwave regime generated by powerful laser-matter interaction
Dr Fabrizio Consoli (ENEA - Centro Ricerche Frascati)
The measurement of intense electromagnetic fields in the radiofrequency-microwave regime in experiments of laser interaction with matter is a hot topic both in laser-plasma particle-acceleration context and in inertial-confinement-fusion one. Fields up to MV/m intensity are generated in powerful interactions, but their characterization is a very delicate and complex issue, especially when...
19. Spectral characterization by CVD diamond detectors of energetic protons from high-repetition rate laser for aneutronic nuclear fusion experiments
Dr Mattia Cipriani (ENEA - CR Frascati)
The use of high-power femtosecond lasers to accelerate particles through the Target Normal Sheath Acceleration (TNSA) process is one of the most active fields of research of the last years. Protons have been produced in facilities worldwide, with energies up to tens of MeVs. For some applications the main requirement is to maximize the particle flux in a specific energy range. For aneutronic...
