The dependence of the energy of ions accelerated during the interaction of the laser pulse obliquely incident on the thin foil target on the laser polarization is studied experimentally and theoretically. We found that the ion energy being maximal for the p-polarization drastically decreases when the pulse becomes s-polarized. The experimentally found dependencies of the ion energy are explained by invoking anomalous electron heating, which results in high electrostatic potential formation at the target surface.

It has been known for about sixty years that proton and heavy ion therapy is a very powerful radiation procedure for treating tumors. It has an innate ability to irradiate tumors with greater doses and spatial selectivity compared with electron and photon therapy and, hence, is a tissue sparing procedure. For more than twenty years, powerful lasers have generated high energy beams of protons and heavy ions and it has, therefore, frequently been speculated that lasers could be used as an alternative to radiofrequency (RF) accelerators to produce the particle beams necessary for cancer therapy. The present paper reviews the progress made towards laser driven hadron cancer therapy and what has still to be accomplished to realize its inherent enormous potential.

Suitable instrumentation for laser-accelerated proton (ion) beams is critical to the development of integrated, laser-driven ion accelerator systems. Instrumentation aimed at beam diagnostics and control must be applied to the driving laser pulse, the laser-plasma that it forms at the target and the emergent proton (ion) bunch in a correlated way to develop these novel accelerators. This report is a brief overview of established diagnostic techniques and new developments based on material presented at the first workshop on "Instrumentation for Diagnostics and Control of Laser-accelerated Proton (ion) Beams" in Abingdon, UK. It includes radiochromic film (RCF), image plate (IP), the micro-channel plate (MCP), the Thomson spectrometer, prompt inline scintillation, time and space-resolved interferometry (TASRI) and nuclear activation schemes. Repetition-rated instrumentation requirements for target metrology are also addressed.

レーザープラズマ電子加速のイオン化ステージ制御法における電子線発生において適切、もしくは不適切なガスターゲットについて報告する。4TW・40fsのピーク出力及びパルス幅のレーザーをビームは、9$$times$$10$$^{17}$$W/cm$$^{2}$$の強度でターゲットに照射した。実験では、ネオンとアルゴンを用いてこの電子線生成の調査を行った。アルゴンターゲットにおいて、高エネルギー電子線は5$$times$$10$$^{18}$$cm$$^{-3}$$の中性ガス密度の閾値で観測した。一方、ネオンでは中性ガス密度を5$$times$$10$$^{18}$$cm$$^{-3}$$から5$$times$$10$$^{19}$$cm$$^{-3}$$までスキャンしたものの、顕著な高エネルギー電子($$>$$1MeV, $$<$$1pC)は観測されなかった。この結果を考察するために光プローブを用いて励起レーザーの挙動を調査した。その結果、特にアルゴンターゲットで観察した強力なレーザー・チャンネルの構造が、ネオンにおいて生じていないことを確認した。さらに、光線追跡計算から、イオン化のスロープ部分での屈折効果によって相対論的自己収束が妨げられていることがわかった。

We demonstrate the performance of an efficient insertable pulsecleaning module that uses a saturable absorber pair with a compensatingmulti-pass amplifier. The module is implemented with a conventional CPATi:sapphire laser system. It suppresses the amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) level of the pulse pedestal by about three orders of magnitude whilepreserving the output pulse energy and repetition-rate of the overall lasersystem. The effectiveness of the cleaning module is confirmed in laserdrivenproton acceleration experiments. At the 10$$^{9}$$ W/cm$$^{2}$$ pedestal level, the surface structure and electrical resistivity of an insulator target (100 nmsilicon nitride) are preserved prior to the arrival of the intense ultrashortpulse.

Optical features of point defects photoluminescence in LiF crystals, irradiated by soft X-ray pulses of the Free Electron Laser were measured. We found that peak of photoluminescence spectra lies near of 530 nm. Our results suggest that redistribution of photoluminescence peak intensity from red to green part of the spectra is associated with a shortening of the applied for irradiation of LiF laser pulses down to pico - or femtosecond durations. Dependence of peak intensity of photoluminescence spectra from the soft X-ray irradiation fluence was measured and the absence of quenching phenomena, even at relatively high fluencies was found, which is very important for wide applications of LiF crystal X-ray imaging detectors.

To investigate the radiobiological effects of high dose rates that are attributed to high current, short bunch beam generation with laser-dreven ion acceleration, we have developed an experimental setup that uses laser-accelerated protons. ${it In-vitro}$ human lung cancer cells: A549 pulmonary adenocarcinoma are irradiated with a laser-accelerated proton bunches with a duration of $$2 times 10^{-8}$$ s and flux of $$sim10^{15}$$ cm$$^{-2}$$s$$^{-1}$$, amounting to single bunch absorbed dose at the 1 Gy level. The double-strand break (DSB) yield in cell DNA is analyzed for the laser-accelerated proton beam at an average LET of 41 keV/$$mu$$m.

We report on the development of quasi-monoenergetic proton irradiation system driven by laser and its application to radiobiological studies. Protons accelerated by $$5times10^{19}$$ W/cm$$^2$$ laser pulses are energy-selected by quadruple-dipole magnets (QDM) and delivered with an energy peak at 2.25 MeV and energy spread of 0.66 MeV on the full width at half maximum (FWHM). Cell survival ratio is measured with a colony formation assay for ${it in-vitro}$ cell samples from human salivary grand tumor (HSG cells) after the proton irradiation up to 8 Gy with successive bunches having a dose rate of $$10^7$$ Gy/s. We report on the results of RBE (relative biological effectiveness) measurement, which is the first one for laser-accelerated ions.
