QED effects in laser-plasma interactions

Abstract:

It is possible to reach the radiation-reaction–dominated regime in today’s high-intensity laser facilities, using the collision of a wakefield-accelerated GeV electron beam with a 30 fs laser pulse of intensity 1022 Wcm-2. This would demonstrate that the yield of high energy gamma rays is increased by the stochastic nature of photon emission: a beam of 109 electrons will emit 6300 photons with energy > 700 MeV, 60 times the number predicted classically. ...
