The research team in Munich University, Germany and their international collaborators has demonstrated another excellent scientific outputs of ultra thin freestanding DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) film. The dense
relativistic electron mirrors can be created from the interaction of a high-intensity laser pulse
with a freestanding, nanometre-scale thin DLC foil. The mirror structures are shown to shift the
frequency of a counter-propagating laser pulse coherently from the infrared to the extreme
ultraviolet with an efficiency ten thousand times higher than in the case of incoherent scattering. The related article is published in
Nature Communication. The ultra thin DLC film is prepared by Pulse Filtered Cathodic Vacuum Arc P-FCVA source manufactured by Plasma Technology Limited. Their other excenllent works can also refer to previous news of DLC for Ion Acceleration.
The fabrication methode of the freestanding nanoscale DLC film can be referenceed to the article in NIMA..
