With the rapid development of laser systems, plasma-based laser-driven ion acceleration has drawn increasing attention these years. In this book, one of the most efficient and promising ion acceleration mechanisms, so-called radiation pressure acceleration or light-sail regime is re-visited and studied in detail by theoretical analysis and multi-dimensional particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations. Based on a simple "flying plasma mirror" model, accurate scaling laws of the final ion energy, velocity, momentum, and energy coupling efficiency in the light-sail regime have been derived. For smooth proton acceleration, a shaped foil target or a density-modulated foil target is suggested to overcome the foil deformation when a transversely Gaussian laser pulse irradiates the foil. GeV proton beams can be generated with a well-defined quasi-monoenergetic feature in the energy spectrum. For stable proton acceleration in the light-sail regime, a two-ion-species shaped foil target is proposed and demonstrated by a series of PIC simulations. Hard X-ray gernation and attosecond electron beams are also stuided and verified in the light-sail regime.

Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
