Abstract

Laser driven proton acceleration experiments from micron and submicron thick targets using high intensity (2 x 10(21) W/cm(2)), high contrast (10(-15)) laser pulses show an enhancement of maximum energy when hydrogen containing targets were used instead of non-hydrogen containing. In our experiments, using thin (
