Abstract

The original version of this Article contained an error in the legend of Figure 1. “Overview of the catapult electron acceleration scheme in graphene layers. Moving from left to right, as indicated by the blue arrows, a single 3 fs-long laser pulse of 100 nm wavelength and 1021 W/cm2 peak intensity, ionizes a 1.5 μm-long (y) and 1.2 μm-thick (x) stack of graphene layers. The interaction results in self-injected electrons being accelerated to ≃ 7 MeV. The image is at scale, with a 150 nm bar drawn, and for better visibility, only 15 out of 60 graphene layers are shown. The simulated normalized transverse electric field (Ex) is shown as a surface colour plot for the same laser pulse before entering the target (left) and after leaving the target (right). This work contains 2D PIC simulations carried out in the yx-plane indicated in the image.” now reads: “Overview of the catapult electron acceleration scheme in graphene layers.
