7 May 2009 Short-wavelength magnetic structures from the plasma magnetic mode and their applications
Author Affiliations +
We study the possibility of producing short-wavelength magnetostatic structures in plasmas by exciting a plasma magnetic mode in the collision of light pulses with relativistic ionization fronts. Results from PIC simulations demonstrate the generation of these structures with existing state-of-the-art laser systems. We analyze the feasibility of using the magnetic structure associated with the plasma magnetic mode as an undulator for compact synchrotron radiation sources, illustrating the generation of ultrashort-wavelength radiation.
