AB - Spectrally-peaked proton beams of high charge (Ep ≈ 8 MeV, E ≈4 MeV, N ≈ 50 nC ) have been observed from the interaction of an intense laser(> 1019 Wcm−2) with ultrathin CH foils, as measured by spectrally-resolved full beamprofiles. These beams are reproducibly generated for foil thicknesses 5-100 nm, andexhibit narrowing divergence with decreasing target thickness down to ≈ 8for 5 nm.Simulations demonstrate that the narrow energy spread feature is a result of bufferedacceleration of protons. The radiation pressure at the front of the target results inasymmetric sheath fields which permeate throughout the target, causing preferentialforward acceleration. Due to their higher charge-to-mass ratio, the protons outrun acarbon plasma driven in the relativistic transparency regime.
