  1. 1. Laser-Driven Particle Acceleration - Improving Performance Through Smart Target Design

    Detta är en avhandling från Camilla Nilsson, Department of Physics, Division of Atomic Physics, Lund University

    Författare :Matthias Burza; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; wakefield; ultra-relativistic; ultra-intense; TNSA; Terawatt; sheath; proton; polarimetry; plasma mirror; plasma; Petawatt; particle; oscillation; Normarski; micromachining; LWFA; laser; interferometry; electron; contrast; acceleration; bubble; Fysicumarkivet A:2012:Burza;

    Sammanfattning : Laser-driven particle acceleration makes use of sub-picosecond, pulsed, high-power laser systems, capable of producing intensities ~10^{19} W/cm^2 at the laser focus to form plasmas, and use ultra-relativistic and nonlinear dynamics to produce quasistatic acceleration fields. This allows electrons to be accelerated to ~100 MeV over sub-centimetre distances, while protons may be accelerated to the ~10 MeV regime. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Convergence Acceleration for Flow Problems

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Henrik Brandén; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computational fluid dynamics; convergence acceleration; semicirculant preconditioning; fundamental solutions; Numerical Analysis; Numerisk analys;

    Sammanfattning : Convergence acceleration techniques for the iterative solution of system of equations arising in the discretisations of compressible flow problems governed by the steady state Euler or Navier-Stokes equations is considered. The system of PDE is discretised using a finite difference or finite volume method yielding a large sparse system of equations. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Detector Development, Source Characterization and Novel Applications of Laser Ion Acceleration

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Atomic Physics, Department of Physics, Faculty of Engineering, LTH, Lund University

    Författare :Lovisa Senje; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Laser; Ion; Acceleration; Proton; Water; Sheath; Lifetime; Laser; Ion; Acceleration; Proton; Water; Radiolysis; Sheath; Detector; Fysicumarkivet A:2017:Senje;

    Sammanfattning : The main focus of the work presented in this thesis is on experimental studies oflaser acceleration of protons and other positive ions from solid targets. The topic is explored from three different angles: firstly, the development of diagnostics adapted to the ion pulses, secondly, the characterization of the source of the energetic particles and, finally, the application of laser-accelerated protons for time-resolved radiolysis of glass and water.

  4. 4. Experiments on Laser-Based Particle Acceleration : Beams of Energetic Electrons and Protons

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Atomic Physics, Department of Physics, Faculty of Engineering, LTH, Lund University

    Författare :Kristoffer Svensson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016-09-06]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; laser; plasma; acceleration; electrons; protons; Fysicumarkivet A:2016:Svensson;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis describes experiments involving laser-plasma-based acceleration of electrons and protons, using the techniques of laser wakefield acceleration (LWFA) and target normal sheath acceleration (TNSA). By using extremely high accelerating field strengths, up to the order of TV m-1, it is possible to reach high kinetic particle energies over very short distances. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Satellite observations of auroral acceleration processes

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Lars Eliasson; Umeå universitet.; [1994]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Aurora; particle acceleration; space plasma; magnetosphere; ionosphere; polar cap; satellite observations;

    Sammanfattning : Measurements with satellite and sounding rocket borne instruments contain important information on remote and local processes in regions containing matter in the plasma state. The characteristic features of the particle distributions can be used to explain the morphology and dynamics of the different plasma populations. LÄS MER
