Description

An experimental campaign aiming to investigate the ion acceleration mechanism trough laser-matter interaction in femtosecond domain has been carried out at the ILIL facility with a laser intensity of 2E19 W/cm2. A combination of detectors were used to measure the proprieties of accelerated light ions, including a Thomson Parabola (TP), CR-39 detectors and Radiochromic films (RCF) to identify different ion species and measure cut-off energy. We will present the main experimental data and will discuss the correlation between TP, CR-39 and data which give us confidence in measuring cut-off energy and estimate the total number of ions obtained shot-by shot.
