Abstract

We present the first systematic measurement of the transverse parameters of laser produced proton beam. We find a similarity for the shape of the accelerating sheath, which is always close to a parabola. We find also a similarity for the relation between source size and proton energy with the maximum source size and proton energy as a free parameter, which is confirming the similarity we already found for the sheath shape. This is of particular interest for the application of laser produced proton beams as it shows the scalability of the transverse beam parameter.
