Creation of Relativistic Plasmas using Ultrahigh-Intensity Laser Radiation,
LAWRENCE LIVERMORE NATIONAL LAB CA
Pagination or Media Count:
Recent theoretical work on the relativistic dynamics of electrons in plasmas produced by short laser pulses is reviewed. The effect of the electron motion upon the laser propagation is discussed, and brief comments are made about the feasibility of laser-induced nuclear reactions and laser wakefield accelerators.
