FIG. 1.

Spatial density profile of ions at different times for and . In (a), the ion density at time is shown, i.e., when the face of the laser pulse is at the extreme left of the simulation domain and the ions are undisturbed. (b) Shows the ion density profile at . We can notice here that the tail of the plasma is at hence indicating that all the ions have passed through the accelerating field generated by the double layer by this time. (c) and (d) shows ion densities at and , respectively, from which we can see that the ions have been further displaced leading to a indication of multistage acceleration process.

Figures (a), (c), and (e) show the longitudinal electric field at times , and , respectively, for and . (b), (d), and (f) show the proton energy spectrum at similar times. We see that at , the ions peak at energy 30.25 MeV. At , we can see a second peak emerging at 90.5 MeV to which almost all the ions get dumped at .
