Abstract With the optimal choice of a target and the laser pulse parameters, the ultrahigh current density of the protons ejected from the target (over 10{sup 10} A cm{sup -2}) is experimentally shown to be achievable already for a laser intensity of {approx} 2 x 10{sup 17} Wcm{sup -2} (the pulse energy is less than 1 J and its duration does not exceed 1 ps). Table-top laser systems with such parameters are promising as ion sources for applications in nuclear physics, medicine, ion implantation, and material diagnostics.
