Fundamental physics and relativistic laboratory astrophysics with extreme power lasers

  • T.Zh. Esirkepov (a1) and S.V. Bulanov (a1)

Abstract

The prospects of using extreme relativistic laser-matter interactions for laboratory astrophysics are discussed. Laser-driven process simulation of matter dynamics at ultra-high energy density is proposed for the studies of astrophysical compact objects and the early universe.
