Abstract

High energy protons with the energy up to 10 MeV were accelerated in the forward direction using a tabletop laser with focusing intensity of 6×1018 W/cm2. When a deuterated polystyrene was deposited on a front surface of a Mylar film and a boron sample was placed behind the laser target we observed the production of ∼105 atoms of positron active isotope 11C from the reaction 10B(d,n)11C. The activation results suggest that deuterons were accelerated from the front surface of the laser target.
