Abstract

We report on the J-KAREN-P laser facility at QST, which can provide PW peak power at 0.1 Hz on target. The system can deliver short pulses with an energy of 30 J and pulse duration of 30 fs after compression with a contrast level of better than 10 12 . Such performance in high field science will give rise to the birth of new applications and breakthroughs, which include relativistic particle acceleration, bright X-ray source generation, and nuclear activation. The current achieved laser intensity on target is up to > 9x10 21 Wcm-2 with an energy of ∼9 J on target. The interaction with a 3 to 5-μm stainless steel tape target provides us electrons with a typical temperature of more than 10 MeV and energetic proton beams with typical maximum energies of > 40 MeV with good reproducibility. The protons are accelerated in the Target Normal Sheath Acceleration regime, which is suitable for many applications including as an injector into a beamline for medical use, which is one of our objectives.
