11 May 2011 QED effects and radiation generation in relativistic laser plasma
Author Affiliations +
The radiative and quantum effects in laser plasmas are discussed. The self-consistent numerical model based on particle-in-cell and Monte-Carlo methods are developed. First we analyze the spectra of Compton backscattered photons and betatron radiation in the classical and quantum regimes. Then we address an interaction between intense laser pulse and relativistic electron beam. Finally we discuss the electron-positron pair plasma production in extremely-intense laser field. It is shown that such plasma can be an efficient source of energetic gammaquanta.
