Self-consistent model of the electron-positron pair production in the collision of laser pulses

Pair production due to the Schwinger mechanism is modeled in a self-consistent approach taking into account the backreaction of the created particles on the field. The model uses the Boltzmann

Phase space evolution of pairs created in strong electric fields

Kinetics of Degenerate Electron–Positron Plasmas

Relativistic plasma can be formed in strong electromagnetic or gravitational fields. Such conditions exist in compact astrophysical objects, such as white dwarfs and neutron stars, as well as in

Extremely high-intensity laser interactions with fundamental quantum systems

The field of laser-matter interaction traditionally deals with the response of atoms, molecules, and plasmas to an external light wave. However, the recent sustained technological progress is opening



Schwinger limit attainability with extreme power lasers.

It is shown that the effects of radiation friction and the electron-positron avalanche development in vacuum depend on the electromagnetic wave polarization, and there is an apparent analogy of these cases with circular and linear electron accelerators to the corresponding constraining and reduced roles of synchrotron radiation losses.

Laser field absorption in self-generated electron-positron pair plasma.

The numerical model for a self-consistent study of electron-positron pair plasma dynamics is developed and it is shown that the absorption becomes important for a not extremely high laser intensity I ∼ 10(24)  W/cm(2) achievable in the near future.

Structure of the Electrospheres of Bare Strange Stars

We consider a thin (~102-103 fm) layer of electrons (the electrosphere) at the quark surface of a bare strange star, taking into account the surface effects at the boundary with the vacuum. The quark

Zettawatt-exawatt lasers and their applications in ultrastrong-field physics

Since its birth, the laser has been extraordinarily effective in the study and applications of laser-matter interaction at the atomic and molecular level and in the nonlinear optics of the bound

Coherent focusing of high harmonics: a new way towards the extreme intensities.

We demonstrate analytically and numerically that focusing of high harmonics produced by the reflection of a few-femtosecond laser pulse from a concave plasma surface opens a new way to

Pair creation in QED-strong pulsed laser fields interacting with electron beams.

The system of integro-differential kinetic equations for electrons, positrons and γ photons is derived and solved numerically and the range of laser pulse intensities of J≥5×10(22) W/cm2 combined with electron beam energies of tens of GeV is discussed.

Pair production in counter-propagating laser beams

Based on an analysis of a specific electron trajectory in counter-propagating beams, Bell and Kirk (2008 Phys. Rev. Lett. 101 200403) recently suggested that laboratory lasers may shortly be able to
