Title: High-Intensity Laser Interactions with Mass-Limited Solid Targets and Implications for Fast-Ignition Experiments on OMEGA EP

Abstract

The modeling of petawatt laser-generated hot electrons in mass-limited solid-foil-target interactions at "relativistic" laser intensities is presented using copper targets and parameters motivated by recent experiments at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory Petawatt and 100-TW facilities. Electron refluxing allows a unique determination of the laser-electron conversion efficiency and a test with simulations.
