Abstract: Title: Applications of Pre-plasma in Double-layer Target Acceleration
Speaker: Shengfei Tong (童晟飞)
Abstract: Recent numerical simulations have shown that near-critical density pre-plasma can enhance the energy of protons accelerated from a double-layer target. In addition, pre-plasma is also beneficial to control the energy distribution of proton beam by modifying the dynamics of hot electrons. Latest simulations show the differences between acceleration processes with and without pre-plasma, as well as some ways to improve the quality and quantity of proton beam.
