This presentation will focus on demonstrating the possibility to highly focus high energy proton beams by self-generated magnetic field produced during the interaction of a high contrast, high intensity laser beam with thin solids targets of various materials. We will show, using experiments and simulations, that knowing the dynamics of such self-generated magnetic field allow us to control the collimation of high energy proton beam.
