High-flux energetic protons whose maximum energies are up to 4 MeV are generated by an intense femtosecond Titanium Sapphire laser pulse interacting with a 7.5, 12.5, and 25$$mu$$m thick Polyimide tape targets. The laser pulse energy is 1.7 J, duration is 34 fs, and intensity is 3$$times$$10$$^{19}$$Wcm$$^{-2}$$. The amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) has the intensity contrast ratio of 4$$times$$10$$^{-8}$$. The conversion efficiency from laser energy into proton kinetic energies of $$sim$$3% is achieved, which is comparable or even higher than those achieved in the previous works with nanometer-thick targets and the ultrahigh contrast laser pulses ($$sim$$10$$^{-10}$$).

A laser-driven proton beam with a maximum energy of a few MeV is stably obtained using an ultra-short and high-intensity Titanium Sapphire laser. At the same time, keV X-ray is also generated at almost the same place where protons are emitted. Here, we show the successful demonstration of simultaneous proton and X-ray projection images of a test sample placed close to the source with a resolution of $$sim$$10$$mu$$m, which is determined from the source sizes. Although the experimental configuration is very simple, the simultaneity is better than a few hundreds of ps. A CR-39 track detector and imaging plate, which are placed as close as possible to the CR-39, are used as detectors of protons and X-ray. The technique is applicable to the precise observation of microstructures.

We are developing a proton accelerator using an intense lasers with a focused intensity of $$>$$ 10$$^{17}$$ W/cm$$^{2}$$. To monitor proton energy spectra as well as plasma parameters at each laser shot, we are using real time detectors. The proton energy of MeV is stably obtained for applications.

At present, using ultra-short high intensity lasers at APRC, JAEA Kansai photon research institute, we are developing laser driven multiple quantum beams such as protons, X-rays, electrons and THz waves. These beams are perfectly synchronized with each other. The pulse duration of each beam is lass than a pico-second. They have sharp directionality with high brightness. If we properly combined these, we have new pump-probe techniques for various applications.

Moreover, demonstration of simultaneous imaging by the proton beam and X-rays was measured.

The efficient proton beam whose maximum energy of up to 4 MeV was produced by the 50TW short pulse intensity Ti:Sap laser irradiated on the polyimide target [(C16H6O4N2)n] with the thicknesses of 7.5$$mu$$m, 12.5$$mu$$m, 25$$mu$$m, which is transparent to the 800nm laser. The laser parameters are energy of 1.7J, pulse width of 35fs and the intensity of 3$$times$$10$$^{19}$$Wcm$$^{-2}$$. The contrast of the ASE component is 4$$times$$10$$^{-8}$$. The conversion efficiency from laser energy into the proton kinetic energy is up to $$sim$$3%. This conversion efficiency is comparable or even higher than the results obtained with the same level laser ($$sim$$ J energy) interacts with the nano-meter level ultra thin target. In this paper we discuss on the comparison between our results and other experimental results obtained in other facilities.

A laser-driven proton beam with a maximum energy of a few MeV is stably obtained using an ultra-short and high-intensity Titanium Sapphire laser. As compared with the proton beam from the conventional accelerator, this proton beam exhibits peculiar characteristics, such as, more than 10$$^{13}$$ protons per bunch are produced within a short pulse duration of $$sim$$ps at a source, resulting in a very high peak current. It also exhibits a very low transverse emittance. The proton beam has a divergence angle of $$sim$$10 degrees and energy spread of $$sim$$100%. It accompanies electrons and X-rays, which is produced simultaneously. Making the best use of these peculiar characteristics, many possible applications of the laser-driven proton are proposed. In order to make practical laser-driven proton beam for the applications, we carry out series of experiments. We have successfully obtained simultaneous imaging of the target with proton and X-ray or proton and electron beams. In the course of practical use of the proton beam for specific applications, characteristics above should be optimized based on the variations of the applications. For example, in order to apply the laser-driven proton beam for the proton irradiation system, such as used in the medical or the industrial applications, we should obtain focused or parallel proton beam. One of our plans to alter the orbits of the laser-driven protons from the planer tape target is using permanent quadrupole magnets.
