Abstract
The problem of interaction of short laser pulse (light frequency ω0, pulse duration, τ < ls/VTi; ls, skin depth, VTi, ion velocity) with dense (ω0 << ωpe) semi-infinite plasma was solved. We formulated the self-consistent problem of obtaining the electron distribution function and space dependence of electric field in skin layer, and solved the problem for the case of absence of the energy losses from the skin layer. We found self-similar nonstationary electron distribution function and space dependence of electric field in this case, and basing on these solutions, have calculated mean electron energy , absorption coefficient, bremsstrahlung radiation, time dependent skin depth. Finally we discussed the limitations of our theory.
