Synchrotron radiation, pair production, and longitudinal electron motion during 10-100 PW laser solid interactions

Abstract:

At laser intensities above 1023 W/cm2, the interaction of a laser with a plasma is qualitatively different to the interactions at lower intensities. In this intensity regime, solid targets start to become relativistically underdense, gamma-ray production by synchrotron emission starts to become an important feature of the dynamics and, at even higher intensities, electron-positron pair production by the non-linear Breit-Wheeler process starts to occur. In this paper, an analysis is presented ...
