Caractérisation de faisceaux de protons produits par laser via une analyse optique et nucléaire de films RCF

Abstract : Generation of particle beams with high intensity lasers opens new domains of investigation both for fundamental and applied research. These beams are often characterized by means of radiochromic films (RCF) 1,2,3 which provide information both on their energy and spatial distributions. However the optical response function of these films for protons depends on their precise composition and is not well known making it difficult to extract absolute information on the number of particles contained in the beam. Proton induced nuclear reactions in RCF produce radioactive elements. The analysis of these activities allows to determine in a completely independent way the energy distribution of the proton beams 4,5. With the Monte Carlo simulation code Geant4, we have established the nuclear activation response function for different stacks of RCF films or RCF films and copper foils. We will present our method making use of the optical and nuclear activation responses of RCF and discuss the results obtained in the analysis of proton beams generated with the LULI 100 TW laser.
