Abstract
In this article, we report on experimental electron spectra generated by SMLWF in the ultra-relativistic regime a0 > 1, where a0 is the normalized vector potential of the laser. For the first time, we have observed that in our range of parameters the maximum electron energy increases when the electron density decreases. A maximum of 70 MeV was observed for ne/nc equals 1.5 percent.
