D.; Zemaityte, Egle; Bradford, Philip; Rusby, Dean; Neely, David; Huggard, Peter; McKenna, Paul; Brenner, Ceri; Woolsey, Nigel; Wang, Wei-Min; Sheng, Zheng-Ming; Zhang, Jie; National Nature Science Foundation of China; Science Challenge Project; Strategic Priority Research Program of CAS; National Key Research and Development Program of China; Newton UK grant; Engineering and Physical Sciences Research CouncilThis dataset includes experimental and numerical data from the manuscript 'Towards terawatt-scale spectrally-tunable terahertz pulses via relativistic laser-foil interactions'. The experimental data are obtained in the experiment titled “Intense terahertz radiation from picosecond laser-produced plasmas” (Application No.: 16110035, PI: David Neely), performed at Vulcan TAW. In this experiment, we demonstrate efficient production of terawatt (TW)-level THz pulses from high-intensity picosecond laser-foil interactions, and find the THz spectrum can be manipulated effectively by tuning the laser pulse duration or target size. A general analytical framework for THz generation is developed involving both the high-current electron emission and a time-varying electron sheath at the target rear, and the spectral tunability is found to stem from the change of the dominant THz generation mechanism. The THz radiation is applied to quantitatively diagnose the electron emission and the transient sheath, in good agreements with experimental measurements. Please see the file named “Data description” in the root directory of the attached zip file for a detailed description of the data contained therein. The data acquisition and analysis methods can also be found in the manuscript.

Data already in existing archives have the DOI provided. New data not in an archive is provided within this DOI. The review paper abstract is: “This paper provides an up to date review of the problems related to the generation, detection and mitigation of strong electromagnetic pulses created in the interaction of high power, high energy laser pulses with different types of solid targets. It includes new experimental data obtained independently at several international laboratories. The mechanisms of electromagnetic field generation are analyzed and considered as a function of the intensity and the spectral range of emissions they produce. The major emphasis is put towards the GHz frequency domain which is the most damaging for electronics and may have important applications. The physics of electromagnetic emissions in other spectral domains, in particular THz and MHz, is also discussed. The theoretical models and numerical simulations are compared with the results of experimental measurements, with special attention to the methodology of measurements and complementary diagnostics. Understanding the underlying physical processes is the basis for developing techniques to mitigate the electromagnetic threat and to harness electromagnetic emissions, which may have promising applications.” List of data: • Figure 5: Matlab code and input file used to generate figure provided in file “Figures-5-6_Poye-A.zip” • Figure 6: Matlab code and input file used to generate figure provided in file “Figures-5-6_Poye-A.zip” • Figure 18: experimental data used to generate figure is located at: http://dx.doi.org/10.5286/edata/1 • Figure 54: data used to generate figure is located at: https://doi.org/10.15124/a5d78c76-0546-412c-8b02-9edcb75efbb7 • Figure 55: data used to generate figure is located at: https://doi.org/10.15124/a5d78c76-0546-412c-8b02-9edcb75efbb7 • Figure 56: data used to generate figure is located at: https://doi.org/10.15124/a5d78c76-0546-412c-8b02-9edcb75efbb7 • Figure 57: data used in figure given in excel spreadsheet provided in file “Figures-57-58-59_Orion_Hillier-D” • Figure 58: data used in figure given in excel spreadsheet provided in file “Figures-57-58-59_Orion_Hillier-D” • Figure 59: data used in figure given in excel spreadsheet provided in file “Figures-57-58-59_Orion_Hillier-D”
