Paper Abstract

We present early prototype of a high repetition target delivery system, designed for nominal operation rate at 1 Hz but with possibility of running at up to 10 Hz. The system is primarily intended to deliver complex solid-state targets, such as composite foils or structured shapes, in vacuum environment into the focus of a high-repetition laser. The system in its full version consists of a carousel exchanger accommodating 450 target frames, and a feeding block positioning the individual frames into the laser focus, with nominal precision of about 10 microns. A kinematical prototype of this device was built and its performance is currently evaluated.
