Paper Abstract

Simulation studies of laser-induced ion acceleration are extended from the present intensities up to ~1022 W/cm2 that will be achieved soon at the ELI-Beamlines facility in Prague. Numerical simulations of target normal sheath acceleration (TNSA) enhancement by micro-structures on the front and rear sides of thin foils will be extended to higher laser intensities together with a brief description of target preparation techniques. Computational study of the impact of laser polarization, laser incidence angle, foil thickness and material is presented for PW laser beam of intensity of the order 1022 W/cm2. Acceleration regime that combines TNSA with radiation pressure acceleration (RPA) is identified.
