Ion acceleration in electrostatic collisionless shocks is driven by the interaction of the high-power laser with specially tailored near-relativistic critical density plasma. 2D EPOCH particle-in-cell simulations show that the ion acceleration is dependent on the target material used. In materials with low charge-to-mass ratio.
