Abstract:

With the rapid development of high energy, coherent, monochromatic laser sources foreseen, the interaction phenomenon between two such sources is of fundamental importance. This work attempts to treat the above interaction by the use of the Lagrangian for a strong electromagnetic field. The quantum mechanical effect of the scattering between plane light waves is simulated within the framework of classical theory under the assumption of an effective non linear interaction between the light waves. The scattered fields are solved for, and expressions are obtained for, the scattered power. Author
