Abstract
The non-zero net dc force acting on relativistic beam electrons traveling a laser wave and isotropic turbulent plasma waves is calculated by using quantum-kinetics. The force is caused by net inverse bremsstrahlung (the absorption by inverse bremsstrahlung minus the emission by stimulated bremsstrahlung) of the electromagnetic wave in the isotropic turbulent plasma field and is not the Lorentz force. It is found that the average of this force is independent of the spread of the electron beam energy increases with the electron beam energy can be stronger than the Lorentz force of the laser wave for very strong laser intensities and electron-energies far beyond the energy region where a single-photon process can take place. 2.
