Abstract

Using the upgraded Vulcan Petawatt laser at 3×1020 Wcm-2 intensities, target interactions and acceleration in a gas jet were studied. Electron spectra with energies up to 240 MeV were detected. Indications of a new acceleration regime, which results in a non-Maxwellian distribution were observed.
