Phenomenological theory of laser-plasma interaction in ``bubble'' regime
The electron trapping in the “bubble” regime of laser-plasma interaction as proposed by Pukhov and Meyer-ter-Vehn [A. Pukhov and J. Meyer-ter-Vehn, Appl. Phys. B 74, 355 (2002)] is studied. In this
Self-compression of laser pulses in plasma.
Self-compression of weakly relativistically intense laser pulses in subcritical plasmas using one- and three-dimensional direct particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations to develop an analytical model and results agree well with the model.
Effect of laser polarization on quantum electrodynamical cascading
Development of quantum electrodynamical (QED) cascades in a standing electromagnetic wave for circular and linear polarizations is simulated numerically with a 3D PIC-MC code. It is demonstrated that
Electron self-injection in multidimensional relativistic-plasma wake fields.
The model predicts the condition for electron trapping and the trapping cross section in terms of the bubble radius and the bubble velocity and is in a good agreement with results of 3D particle-in-cell simulations.
X-ray generation in an ion channel
X-ray generation by relativistic electrons in an ion channel is studied. The emission process is analyzed in the regime of high harmonic generation when the plasma wiggler strength is large. Like for
The bubble regime of laser plasma acceleration: monoenergetic electrons and the scalability
The bubble regime of electron acceleration in ultra-relativistic laser plasma is considered. It has been shown that the bubble can produce ultra-short dense bunches of electrons with
Influence of external inhomogeneous static fields on interaction between beam of charged particles and packet of electromagnetic waves
The generalized form of Madey’s [Nuovo Cimento B 50, 64 (1979)] theorem is derived. The obtained results are used to analyze the influence of inhomogeneous electric and magnetic fields on an
Horizon 2020 EuPRAXIA design study
The Horizon 2020 Project EuPRAXIA ("European Plasma Research Accelerator with eXcellence In Applications") is preparing a conceptual design report of a highly compact and cost-effective European
Laser field absorption in self-generated electron-positron pair plasma.
Recently, much attention has been attracted to the problem of limitations on the attainable intensity of high power lasers [A. M. Fedotov et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 105, 080402 (2010)]. The laser
