Electrostatic field distribution at the sharp interface between high density matter and vacuum
Ultrahigh intensity lasers are proven to be particularly suitable for ion acceleration to energies above hundreds of keV and even in the multi MeV range, due to their interaction with either planarExpand

Ionization-induced leaking-mode channeling of intense short laser pulses in gases
We demonstrate that short laser pulse self-guiding over distances of many Rayleigh lengths can be achieved in the absence of any focusing nonlinearity as a result of trapping of a leaking wave in aExpand
