Investigations of Field Dynamics in Laser Plasmas with by Thomas Sokollik

By Thomas Sokollik

Laser-driven proton beams are nonetheless of their infancy yet have already got a few notable attributes in comparison to these produced in traditional accelerators. One such characteristic is the in most cases low beam emittance. this permits very good solution in imaging purposes like proton radiography. This thesis describes a unique imaging approach - the proton streak digital camera - that the writer constructed and primary used to degree either the spatial and temporal evolution of ultra-strong electric fields in laser-driven plasmas. Such investigations are of paramount value for the knowledge of laser-plasma interactions and, hence, for optimization of laser-driven particle acceleration. specifically, the current paintings investigated micrometer-sized round pursuits after laser irradiation. The constrained geometry of plasmas and fields used to be chanced on to steer the kinetic strength and spatial distribution of sped up ions. this might be proven either in experimental radiography photographs and and in numerical simulations, one in all which was once chosen for the canopy web page of actual evaluation Letters.
