The analysis makes use of fully nonlinear models, analytical techniques and extensive simulations, whereby both qualitative and quantitative interpretations are included. The book provides a comprehensive introduction to laser physics at relativistic intensities that will be valuable to both researchers and graduate students. Laser Physics at Relativistic Intensities Professor Dr. Sci. Andrew V. Borovsky, Dr. Sci. Andrew L. Galkin, Ph.D. Oleg B. Shiryaev, Dr. Thierry Auguste (auth.) This book addresses the nonlinear interactions of ultra-high-intensity electromagnetic radiation with matter. For the first time in a book, this monograph describes relativistic and charge-displacement self-channelling, which is the major finding in the physics of superintense laser beams. It also presents general nonlinear models of lasers - plasma interactions specifically in the case of extremely high intensities.   Insofar, most of the studies in Coulomb explosion of clusters have been at non-relativistic laser intensities. The question of how the ionisation of the clusters change at relativistic intensities \(({>}2\times 10^{18}\) Wcm \(^{-2}\)) is little explored. In this article, we present charge resolved ion spectroscopic measurement of ion emission Author: R. Rajeev, M. Krishnamurthy.

We present a summary on the exact solutions to the classical relativistic equations of motion in the field of a plane electromagnetic wave and describe a modification of the averaging procedure, which yields equations governing the average electron motion in the field of a focused laser pulse when an electron oscillates at relativistic by: 2.

The induced dynamics then becomes short enough such that quantum relativistic effects remain of significance,,,,. Then quantum interferences, tunneling, spin and quantum electrodynamical effects are intrinsically involved on the Cited by:
