Title:
Laser-plasma acceleration of quasi-monoenergetic protons from microstructured targets 
Abstract:
Particle acceleration based on high intensity laser systems (a process known as laser–plasma acceleration) has achieved high quality particle beams that compare favourably with conventional acceleration techniques in terms of emittance, brightness and pulse duration. A long-term difficulty associated with laser–plasma acceleration—the very broad, exponential energy spectrum of the emitted particles—has been overcome recently for electron beams. Here we report analogous results for ions, specific...    »
