Foam Target Workshop, 2 November 2022, ELI Beamlines, Czech Republic

This workshop addresses foam targetry in the context of high-power laser-matter interaction.

In the last decade the importance of foam targets in the context of secondary sources (e.g. hard X-ray and gamma-ray production) and ICF/IFE-LPI has increased considerably. The workshop will consist of a series of presentations followed by a round-table discussion covering the following aspects:

  • Theory/simulation: e.g. physics models, description in hydro-codes, benchmarking with experimental data.
  • Experiments: recent results for secondary sources and LPI
  • Technology: production techniques, 3D printing, repetiton-rate targetry possibilities
  • Round-table discussion: ELI R&D laboratory, collaboration with industry, identify needs
