Abstract
We report on simulations of atomic cluster explosions upon interaction with high-intensity femtosecond laser pulses. By using a 2D and 3D fully relativistic PIC code we investigate the dynamics of hydrogen and argon cluster explosions providing information about the time-resolved ion energy spectra, for different laser intensities. Multi-cluster systems are also studied and the influence of cluster distribution in ionic energy spectra is shown. Results indicate that MeV ions are produced through Coulomb explosion of the atomic clusters and the possibility of capturing most of these ions with a specially designed magnetic focusing system is discussed.
