Abstract:

Measurements of the asymptotic energy distribution of the different high energy ion species at Nd-laser irradiance 10 to the 15th power - 10 to the 16th power Wsq cm on a CH2 planar target are presented and the acceleration mechanism of these high energy ions is discussed. Multipeak structure between 10 and 100 keV is observed on the H ion distribution. A disproportionate number of H ions with EZ higher than the CZ ions is also observed.
