フェムト秒高強度レーザーをアルゴンクラスターターゲットに照射して生成したプラズマから発生したアルゴンXVIIスペクトルサテライト線のライン形状を詳細に解析することにより、プラズマ中で非線形現象が起こっていることを明らかにし、その結果、照射レーザー光の第二次高調波(SHG)が発生していることを解明した。サテライト線解析の新しい理論を構築し、入射レーザー光の2 %がSHGに変換されていることを明らかにした。この実験結果は、二次元粒子コードを用いたシミュレーション結果とも良い一致を示した。

Laser wakefield acceleration has the possibility to generate an ultrashort electron beam of the order of femtoseconds or less. Generation of ultrashort pulses is a key to exploring the dynamical behavior of matter on ever-shorter timescales. We found that the profile of the electron beam was manipulated by rotating the laser polarization. The electron beam is in the laser field, which oscillates the electron beam. From electron oscillations in the image of the electron energy distribution, the electron beam pulse width is estimated to be 1.7 fs (rms). The peak current is 10 kA.

We provide a description of experiments performed with the J-KAREN and Astra Gemini lasers where we discovered a new regime of relativistic high-order harmonic generation by multi-terawatt femtosecond lasers in gas targets. The results were explained using particle-in-cell simulations and catastrophe theory. Our work paves the way towards a bright coherent X-ray source based on compact lasers and accessible, repetitive, and debris-free gas jet targets. Such a source will be crucial for fundamental research and numerous applications requiring pumping, probing, imaging of microscopic objects and for attosecond science.

We present a detailed description of our discovery of a new regime of high-order harmonic generation, including experimental data, simulations, and description of new harmonic generation mechanism. The harmonics are generated by multi-terawatt relativistic-irradiance ($$>$$ 10$$^{18}$$ W/cm$$^2$$) femtosecond ($$approx$$ 30-50 fs) lasers focused to gas jet targets. According to our model, the harmonics are produced by sharp, structurally stable, oscillating electron spikes at the joint of boundaries of wake and bow waves excited by the laser pulse.

Time-of-flight neutron diffraction may evidently accelerate the bulk texture measurement speed through the proper combination of multiple orientations distributed neutron detectors and the simultaneous multiple diffraction peak acquisition, and only few sample rotations are needed to be carried out. In addition to the omega-axis rotatable sample changer, a dedicated omega/chi two-axis rotatable goniometer is under urgent development. It is highly expected to play an important role to evaluate the bulk texture evolution of advanced materials during thermomechanical controlling process. Though the intrinsic difference in neutron diffraction spectra from different orientations (determined by each set of Bragg angle/azimuthal angle) evidently increases the technical difficulty in rapid texture analysis, the development of Materials Analysis Using Diffraction (MAUD, developed by Luca Lutterotti, et al.) and other relevant software/programs are bringing us much convenience. Moreover, in order to increase the accessibility to neutron diffraction bulk texture measurement instruments, the various cooperative researches and the mail-in services are being planned.

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。

レーザークラスター相互作用で発生するX線の強度を増加させるためには、X線生成強度のクラスターサイズ依存性を理解することが重要である。クラスター半径を背圧で制御可能なコニカルノズルを用いて、われわれはXe K殻X線生成実験を試みた。その結果クラスター半径が8から12nmに増加するにつれてX線強度は増加し、12から17nmでほとんど強度が飽和することがわかった。またX線強度のレーザー強度依存性を調べ、X線生成の閾値強度が2$$times$$10$$^{17}$$と5$$times$$10$$^{18}$$W/cm$$^2$$の間に存在することを明らかにした。

Laser wakefield acceleration is capable of generating electron bunches with high quality: quasi-monoenergetic, low in emittance, and a very short duration of the order of ten femto-seconds. Such femtosecond bunches can be used to measure ultrafast phenomena. We conducted experiments for controllable electron bunch generation. Short-lived, $$sim$$10 ps, deep plasma channels, with their lengths of $$sim$$1 mm and diameters of $$sim$$20 $$mu$$m, are observed and characterized in Ar gas jets irradiated by moderate intensity, $$sim$$10$$^{15-16}$$ W/cm$$^2$$, laser pulses with a duration from subpicosecond to several picoseconds. The channels, upon 2D particle-in-cell simulations including ionization, fit well in the guiding of high intensity femtosecond laser pulses and, therefore, in laser wakefield acceleration with a controllable electron self-injection.

Laser wakefield acceleration is capable of generating electron bunches with high quality: quasi-monoenergetic, low in emittance, and a very short duration of the order of ten femto-seconds. Such femtosecond bunches can be used to measure ultrafast phenomena. We conducted experiments for stable electron bunch generation. When the target was nitrogen, the position and the energy were stable due to the long channel length. We have succeeded in generating a stable 40 MeV electron bunch for optimum plasma density. The electron beam oscillates in the electric field of the laser pulse. In energy space, the oscillation can be observed, and the electron energy spectrum can be converted to the electron pulse width. We have succeeded a measurement of the oscillation. The wave structure of the energy spectrum depends on the laser frequency. The pulse width (FWHM) of the electron is 1.5-cycles at a wavelength of 800 nm. The pulse width is 1.7 fs (rms).

It is shown that various spectroscopic methods based on measurements of X-ray spectra radiated from cluster targets can be used for estimation of the destruction degree of clusters by laser prepulses. These methods allow answering the important issue of preservation of the dense cluster core at the moment of the arrival of the main laser pulse. In addition, they can be used for quantitative estimation of the size of the undestroyed parts of the clusters and also for measuring the temperature and density of the preplasmas produced by the laser prepulses.


Relativistic high harmonic generation in gas jet targets

We experimentally demonstrate new regime of high-order harmonic generation by relativistic-irradiance lasers in gas jet targets. Bright harmonics with both the odd and even orders are emitted in the forward direction, while the base harmonic frequency is downshifted. The harmonics are generated by linearly as well as circularly polarized pulses. With the 9 TW laser, the harmonics reach 360 eV, within the "water window" spectral region. Using 120 TW laser producing 40 uJ/sr per harmonic at 120 eV, we demonstrate the photon number scalability. The experimentally demonstrated harmonics cannot be explained by previously known mechanisms. We introduce a novel high-order harmonics generation mechanism, which explains our experimental findings.

In the experiments on the collision of laser light and high intensity electromagnetic pulses generated by relativistic flying mirrors, with electron bunches produced by a conventional accelerator and with laser wake field accelerated electrons the studying of extreme field limits in the nonlinear interaction of electromagnetic waves is proposed. The regimes of dominant radiation reaction, which completely changes the electromagnetic wave-matter interaction, will be revealed. This will result in a new powerful source of high brightness $$gamma$$-rays. A possibility of the demonstration of the electron-positron pair creation in vacuum in a multi-photon processes can be realized. This will allow modeling under terrestrial laboratory conditions neutron star magnetospheres, cosmological $$gamma$$ ray bursts and the Leptonic Era of the Universe.


The Spectra of the multicharged argon hollow ions; Observation, modeling and using for diagnostics of the early stage of the heating of clusters by a supper high contrast femtosecond laser pulses

A study is made of the ultra-short laser pulse irradiation of Ar cluster targets. Experiments have been performed with large cluster sizes and using very high laser contrasts, which have allowed clear and unambiguous observation of exotic inner-shell transitions in near-neutral Ar ions. The interaction of the main laser pulse with the unperturbed target is a necessary requirement for observing these lines. Our measurements are supported by kinetics calculations in which a very detailed atomic model is used. X-ray spectral methods have been proposed to determine the parameters of the appearing plasma at the early stages of its evolution. It has been shown that the spectra of hollow ions are the most informative in the first moments of the heating of a cluster, whereas the diagnostics of the late stages can be performed using the conventional lines of multicharged ions.

We report on novel method to generate ultra-short coherent X-rays using a laser-plasma interaction. Nonlinear interaction of intense laser pulses with plasma creates stable, specific structures such as electron cusps. For example wake waves excited in an underdense plasma by the laser become dense and propagate along with the laser pulse (Flying Mirror). The flying mirror can reflect a counter-propagating laser pulse and directly convert it into high-frequency radiation and compress the pulse. We have conducted experimental results using 9 TW laser with a He gas target. We observed 10$$^{10}$$ photons in the extreme ultra-violet region (12.8-22.0 nm).
