Collisionless Damping of Localized Plasma Waves in Laser-Produced Plasmas and Application to Stimulated Raman Scattering in Filaments

  • COLLISIONLESS DAMPING
  • Published 1999

Abstract

LLE Review, Volume 76 251 Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS), an instability that converts laser light incident on a plasma into plasma waves and lower-frequency scattered photons, has been a major concern in laser fusion research for many years. The scattered photons represent wasted energy, and the plasma waves can produce suprathermal electrons that… (More)
