Measured single-shot Thomson parabola ion energy spectra: a flat solid CD2 target irradiated at an intensity of ~8 × 1019 W cm−2. Traces corresponding to H, D, and C ions are recorded. The tail of the deuteron energy spectrum reaches 0.5 MeV, b array of 400 nm diameter, 5 μm long, CD2 nanowires. c Deuteron and proton energy distribution for the CD2 nanowire array. The tail of the energy spectrum of the D and H spectra approaches 3 MeV and 10 MeV, respectively
