12 May 2015 High-order harmonics from relativistic laser plasmas
Author Affiliations +
High-order harmonic generation of high intensity ultra-short laser pulses by means of laser produced plasmas are discussed. Since with plasma targets there is no limitation on applicable laser intensity the generated harmonics can be substantially intense. Recent results of experiments and computer simulations on the high-order harmonic generation are briefly reviewed. Main attention is paid to the analysis of basic mechanisms of high-order harmonic generation from overdense and underdense plasma targets irradiated by relativistically intense laser pulses.
