Measurements of ultrastrong magnetic fields during relativistic laser-plasma interactions

Abstract:

Measurements of magnetic fields generated during ultrahigh intensity (>10 19Wcm -2), short pulse (0.7-1 ps) laser-solid target interaction experiments are reported. An innovative method is used and the results are compared with particle-in-cell simulations. It is shown that polarization measurements of the self-generated harmonics of the laser can provide a convenient method for diagnosing the magnetic field - and that the experimental measurements indicate the existence of peak fields gre...
