Abstract: In this paper, we present the status of the line for laser-driven light ions acceleration (L3IA) currently under implementation at the Intense Laser Irradiation Laboratory (ILIL), and we provide an overview of the pilot experimental activity on laser-driven ion acceleration carried out in support of the design of the line. A description of the main components is given, including the laser, the beam
transport line, the interaction chamber, and the diagnostics. A review of the main results obtained
so far during the pilot experimental activity is also reported, including details of the laser-plasma
interaction and ion beam characterization. A brief description of the preliminary results of a dedicated
numerical modeling is also provided.
