The effects of radiation reaction (RR) have been studied extensively by using the ultraintense laser interacts with the counter-propagating relativistic electron. At the laser intensity at the order of $10^{23}$ W/cm$^2$, the effects of RR are significant in a few laser period for a relativistic electron. However, the laser at such intensity is tightly focused and the laser energy is usually assumed to be fixed. Then, the signal of RR and energy conservation cannot be guaranteed. To assess the…

If a laser beam is to have radial transverse polarization, the transverse electric must vanish on the symmetry axis, which is charge free in vacuum. However, we can expect a nonzero longitudinal
