Figure 1

Scheme of the experimental set-up showing the laser beam configuration, the target arrangement and the diagnostics (CR39 track detectors and a magnetic spectrometer). The picosecond pulse arrives from the left and generates a proton beam in the first 20-μm Al foil, which has an impact on the boron plasma produced by the nanosecond pulse arriving from the bottom. The second 10-μm Al foil protects the first one from irradiation by the nanosecond beam.
