Abstract:

We have performed an extended study of extreme light-plasma interactions. This effort included three thrusts 1Identification of signatures of the radiation reaction RR and other extreme light effects that might be observed at intensities within an order of magnitude or two of current capability, and thus in the near future 2 Development of novel target designs that facilitate such experiments and 3 Experiments to validate the new target designs.
