The effects of circularly polarized laser pulse on generated electron nano-bunches in oscillating mirror model
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 25 March 2014
The effects of the polarized incident laser pulse on the electrons of the plasma surface and on the reflected pulse in the relativistic laser-plasma interaction is investigated. Based on the relativistic oscillating mirror and totally reflecting oscillating mirror (TROM) regimes, the interaction of the intense polarized laser pulses with over-dense plasma is considered. Based on the effect of ponderomotive force on the characteristic of generated electron nano-bunches, considerable increasing in the localization and charges of nano-bunches are realized. It is found that the circularly polarized laser pulse have Ne/Ncr of 1500 which is almost two and seven times more than the amounts for P-polarized and S-polarized, respectively.
