P K ShuklaCited by: Get this from a library! The interaction of high-power lasers with plasmas. [Shalom Eliezer] -- The field of the "old" and "new" laser plasma interaction are summarized and discussed in this book. The physics and applications of high-power laser interaction are summarized and explained.
With an internationally renowned team of authors, the book broadens the knowledge of young researchers working in high power laser-plasma science by providing them with a thorough pedagogical grounding in the interaction of laser radiation with matter, laser-plasma accelerators, and inertial confinement fusion. High-intensity lasers operate in a different regime, e.g., peak powers of ∼10 12 –10 15 W, pulse lengths of ∼10 −12 –10 −14 s, intensities of ∼10 14 –10 23 W/cm 2, and repetition rates ranging from 10 3 –10 6 Hz with average powers of >10 W. These lasers are used in high-field physics research and have numerous potential by: 9. The extension of laser interaction to the relativistic electron acceleration as well as the physics of collisionless absorption are the subject of Chapter 7. Throughout the book the main emphasis is on the various basic phenomena and on their underlying physics. In this ASI the emphasis is on fundamental processes occurring in the interaction of short laser pulses with atoms, molecules, solids, and plasmas. In the case of laser-atom (molecule) interactions, high power lasers provide the first access to extreme high-intensity conditions above 10'8 Watts/em', a new frontier for nonlinear interaction of.
