Figures

Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

(Color online) Typical proton spectrum obtained using a 100 TW, low contrast laser, coupled to a micro-lens (Ref. 63). The figure shows a central energy of 6.5 MeV instead of the 7 MeV mentioned in the text, because for this central energy simulations were available that show a good fit between experimental and numerical data. The tunability of the microlens in terms of central energy within a range of ~10% has been demonstrated in Ref. 63.

(Color online) (a) Horizontal (red straight line) and vertical (blue dashed-dotted line) envelopes and (b) energy of the reference particle along the propagation axis Z.

(Color online) Longitudinal phase space: (a) at the initial point, (b) at the SCDTL input, and (c) at the SCDTL output. The abscissa is indicated in degrees, as computed by TSTEP, the ordinate is in keV, being both normalised to the reference particle placed in the origin.

(Color online) Parameters at the end of the accelerating structure: Proton current transmission (i.e., output current vs input current) (red circles, left axis), output normalized emittance (blue squares, right axis).
