The folder attached are for the paper, 'Intra-pulse transition between ion acceleration mechanisms in intense laser-foil interactions', published in the journal, Physics of Plasma. The folder contains a read me file which gives direction for the data presented in the paper. In the paper we show that multiple ion acceleration mechanism can occurs when an ultrathin foil is irradiated with an intense laser pulse. The data in paper presents measurement of the spatial-intensity distribution of the proton beam and investigates the transition from radiation pressure acceleration to transparency driven processes. By varying the target thickness, the angle of the ring is shown to correlate to the point at which transparency occurs.
Data embargoed until 06/12/16.
