Abstract: An experimental campaign aiming at investigating the ion acceleration mechanisms through lasermatter
interaction in femtosecond domain has been carried out at the Intense Laser Irradiation
Laboratory facility with a laser intensity of up to 2 × 1019 W/cm2. A Thomson parabola spectrometer
was used to obtain the spectra of the ions of the different species accelerated. Here, we show the
energy spectra of light-ions and we discuss their dependence on structural characteristics of the
target and the role of surface and target bulk in the acceleration process.
