The Journal Nature Communications has published our recent work on laser-driven protons for stress testing materials used in harsh conditions. In this work we demonstrate that laser-generated particles, in particular protons, can be used for stress testing materials and are particularly suited for identifying materials to be used in harsh conditions. We show that these
