Neutrons are powerful tools for investigating the structure and properties of materials used in science and technology. Recently, laser-driven neutron sources (LDNS) have attracted the attention of different communities, from science to industry, in a variety of applications, including radiography, spectroscopy, security, and medicine. However, the laser-driven ion acceleration mechanism for neutron generation and for establishing the scaling law on the neutron yield is essential to improve the feasibility of LDNS. In this paper, we report the mechanism that accelerates ions with spectra suitable for neutron generation. We show that the neutron yield increases with the fourth power of the laser intensity, resulting in the neutron generation of $$3times10^{11}$$ in $$4pi$$ at a maximum, with $$1.1times10^{19}$$ Wcm$$^{-2}$$, 900 J, 1.5 ps lasers. By installing a "hand-size" moderator, which is specially designed for the LDNS, it is demonstrated that the efficient generation of epithermal (0.1-100 eV) neutrons enables the single-shot analysis of composite materials by neutron resonance transmission analysis (NRTA). We achieve the energy resolution of 2.3% for 5.19-eV neutrons 1.8 m downstream of the LDNS. This leads to the analysis of elements and isotopes within sub-$$mu$$s times and allows for high-speed nondestructive inspection.

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。

we report, that by means of direct irradiation of lithium fluoride a (LiF) crystal, in situ 3D visualization of the SACLA XFEL focused beam profile along the propagation direction is realized, including propagation inside photoluminescence solid matter. High sensitivity and large dynamic range of the LiF crystal detector allowed measurements of the intensity distribution of the beam at distances far from the best focus as well as near the best focus and evaluation of XFEL source size and beam quality factor M2. Our measurements also support the theoretical prediction that for X-ray photons with energies $$sim$$10 keV the radius of the generated photoelectron cloud within the LiF crystal reaches about 600 nm before thermalization. The proposed method has a spatial resolution 0.4-2.0 micron for photons with energies 6-14 keV and potentially could be used in a single shot mode for optimization of different focusing systems developed at XFEL and synchrotron facilities.

This paper describes an overview of our recent discovery - clear demonstration that LiF crystals can be efficiently used as a high-performance neutron imaging detector based on optically stimulated luminescence of color centers generated by neutron irradiation. It is shown that the neutron images we have obtained are almost free from granular noise, have a spatial resolution of 5.4 $$mu$$m and a linear response with a dynamic range of at least 10$$^{3}$$. The high contrast and good sensitivity of LiF crystals allow us to distinguish two holes with less than 2% transmittance difference. We propose to use such detectors in areas where high spatial resolution with high image gradation resolution is needed, including diagnostics of different plasma sources such as laser and z-pinch produced plasmas.

Nonlinear cascade scattering of intense tightly focused laser pulses by relativistic electrons is studied numerically including the classical radiation damping. The electron energy loss, along with its side scattering by the ponderomotive force makes the scattering in the vicinity of high laser field nearly impossible at high electron energies. The use of a second co-propagating laser pulse as a booster is shown to solve this problem.

Nonlinear axisymmetric cylindrical plasma oscillations in magnetized collisionless plasmas are amodel for the electron fluid collapse at the axis behind the ultrashort relativisically intense laserpulse exciting the plasma wake wave. We present the analytical description of the strongly nonlinear oscillations showing that the magnetic field prevents from closing the cavity formed behind the laserpulse.

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.

The wave breaking processes originating from a parametric resonance in the wake of a laser pulse in the absence of pulse over-focusing are thoroughly analyzed via multidimensional particle-in-cell simulations. The processes play a key role in the electron self-injection in the laser-driven acceleration of high energy, mono-energetic electrons in plasma channels. The resonance character of the charge loading in the first, second, and third injections is shown; its effect on the electron acceleration is demonstrated.

High density energetic electrons that are created by intense laser plasma interactions drive MeV proton acceleration. Correlations between accelerated MeV protons and electrons are experimentally investigated at laser intensities in the range, 10$$^{18}$$ - 10$$^{19}$$ W/cm$$^2$$ with $$S$$-polarization. Observed proton maximum energies are linearly proportional to the electron slope temperatures with a scaling coefficient of about 10. Experimental results also indicate that, in the context of the simple analytical fluid model for transverse normal sheath acceleration, the ion (proton) density is comparable to density of the hot electron cloud near the target rear surface if an empirical acceleration time is assumed.
