A short overview of laser–plasma acceleration of ions is presented. The focus is on some recent experimental results and the related theoretical work on advanced regimes. These latter include in particular target normal sheath acceleration using ultrashort low-energy pulses and structured targets, radiation pressure acceleration in both thick and ultrathin targets and collisionless shock acceleration in moderate density plasmas. For each approach, open issues and the need and potential for further developments are briefly discussed.

Abstract

A short overview of laser–plasma acceleration of ions is presented. The focus is on some recent experimental results and the related theoretical work on advanced regimes. These latter include in particular target normal sheath acceleration using ultrashort low-energy pulses and structured targets, radiation pressure acceleration in both thick and ultrathin targets and collisionless shock acceleration in moderate density plasmas. For each approach, open issues and the need and potential for further developments are briefly discussed.
