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 X 1018W/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 approximately 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.
