  • Laser hole boring and relativistic electron transport into plasma of 10 times critical density is studied by means of 2D particle-in-cell simulation. At intensities of ${I}_{0}{\ensuremath{\lambda}}^{2}{\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}10}^{20}\mathrm{W}{\mathrm{cm}}^{\ensuremath{-}2}\ensuremath{\mu}{\mathrm{m}}^{2}$, a channel $12\ensuremath{\lambda}$ deep and $3\ensuremath{\lambda}$ in diameter has formed after 200 laser cycles. The laser driven electron current carries up… CONTINUE READING
