Abstract

Beam of protons with the energy up to 10 MeV in the forward direction was observed when a 10 TW laser was focused to the intensity of 6×l018 W/cm2 on a surface of a thin film target. In other set of experiments when the deuterated polystyrene was deposited on a surface of a Mylar film and a10B sample was placed behind the target, we observed the production of ~ 105 atoms of positron active isotope11C from the nuclear reaction10B(d,n)11C.
