Abstract
The development of the short pulse laser capabilities described in the first part of this conference provides opportunities to study new phenomena in plasmas. Some phenomena that require laser pulses there are short Cr (1) and relativistic I C 1) are described here including plasma wakefield excitation, relativistic self-focusing of light, remote guiding of lasers in plasmas (without optical elements), harmonic generation, and photon acceleration (frequency upshifting).
