Relativistic self-compression approaching the Schwinger limit

Abstract

The effects of relativistic mass increase is considered in the context of intense laser–plasma interactions. It is found that the result of the relativistic effect is to enhance the self-compression and collapse of the intense laser pulse, making it possible to reach the Schwinger field limit, at which pair creation would need to be considered.
