Multi-MeV proton and light ion beams had been produced using the 300 ps, kJ-class iodine laser, operating at Prague Asterix Laser System (PALS) Centre in Prague. The target material had been chosen in such a way so as to increase the proton beam current density (approaching 0.1 A/cm(2) at the distance of 1 m from the source). The real-time ion detection was performed by means of a standard flat and ring ion collectors (IC) in the time-of-flight (TOF) configuration. The ICs had been shielded with aluminum foils of various thickness, in order to cut the long photo-peak contribution that is usually overlapping with the ultrafast particle signal, and to analyze mainly the laser-accelerated proton beam. The processing of the obtained experimental IC data is described in some detail, including the deconvolution of TOF signals, evaluation of the UV/soft-X-ray photo-peak absorption, and ion transmission calculations for different metallic filters.
