Abstract:

This multi-PI project focused on understanding the trajectories and energetics of individual charged particles ultra-relativistic strong laser fields under conditions ranging from single particles in vacuum to collective electron dynamics in over-dense plasmas. The importance of the studies in the program lies in the fact that understanding single electron dynamics underly more complex phenomena. Under this grant we have undertaken three linked studies, spanning particle densities from single particles to over dense plasmas and intensities from weakly relativistic 1018 Wcm2 to the ultra-relativistic 1022 Wcm2, the very highest intensities that can be technologically accessed.
