Research on laser induced particle acceleration — •Natascha Raab1, Markus Büscher1, Oswald Willi2, Toma Toncian2, and Andreas Lehrach1 — 1Institut für Kernphysik (IKP) and Jülich Center for Hadron Physics (JCHP), Forschungszentrum Jülich — 2Institut für Laser-Plasma Physik (ILPP), Heinrich Heine Universität Düsseldorf
IKP and ILPP cooperate on research of laser-induced particle acceleration. Measurements are carried out with the high-contrast 100-TW laser system PULSAR of the ILPP.
By focusing the laser beam on thin solid targets or gas jets a plasma is produced at the interaction point and particles from the target are accelerated. Properties like energy- and angular distribution of these particles have been measured. Magnetic systems, like dipole and quadrupole magnets will be employed to adapt their phase space such that they can efficiently be injected into conventional accelerators. In this talk a report on the status of the measurements will be given.
