Electron acceleration by relativistically intense laser beam propagating along a curved surface allows to split softly the accelerated electron bunch and the laser beam. The presence of a curved surface allows to switch an adiabatic invariant of electrons in the wave instantly leaving the gained energy to the particles. The efficient acceleration is provided by the presence of strong transient quasistationary fields in the interaction region and a long efficient acceleration length. The…

Kilotesla plasmoid formation by a trapped relativistic laser beam.

A strong quasistationary magnetic field is generated in hollow targets with curved internal surface under the action of a relativistically intense picosecond laser pulse. Experimental data evidence

Magnetized plasma implosion in a snail target driven by a moderate-intensity laser pulse

Optical generation of compact magnetized plasma structures is studied in the moderate intensity domain and the hot plasma formation achieves a theta-pinch-like density and magnetic field distribution, which implodes into the target interior.
