The inelastic interaction between heavy ions and an electron plasma in the presence of an intense radiation field (RF) is investigated. The stopping power of the test ion averaged with a period of the RF has been calculated assuming that $\omega_{0} >\omega_{p}$, where $\omega_{0}$ is the frequency of the RF and $\omega_{p}$ is the plasma frequency. In order to highlight the effect of the radiation field we present a comparison of our analytical and numerical results obtained for nonzero RF…

Stopping of a relativistic electron beam in a plasma irradiated by an intense laser field

The effects of a radiation field (RF) on the interaction process of a relativistic electron beam (REB) with an electron plasma are investigated. The stopping power of the test electron averaged with

Instabilities for a relativistic electron beam interacting with a laser-irradiated plasma.

It is demonstrated that, in general, the spectrum of the unstable modes in the ω-k plane is split into two distinct domains with long and short wavelengths, where the unstable mode are mainly sensitive to the beam or the RF parameters, respectively.
