Nanowire targets allow an effective penetration of the laser pulse into the target resulting in a significantly increase of absorption of the laser energy. Combining such targets with moderate energy laser pulses we were able to generate an enhanced hard X-ray up to gamma ray emission. We also demonstrate a strong flux of energetic electrons produced within our nanowire targets. This study paws a way for a development of a relatively compact and efficient hard X-ray source operating at a high repetition rate. View this paper.
