Routes to irreversibility in collective laser–matter interaction

Abstract

Collective absorption, so far determined by numerical simulations, is explained in physical terms for cold and warm plasma. After deducing a few general relations for flat targets, interface phase mixing and nonadiabatic electron acceleration in the skin layer are identified as the main physical processes leading to irreversibility, that is, to absorption.
