Numerical Modeling of Radiation-Dominated and QED-Strong Regimes of Laser-Plasma Interaction

By Igor V. Sokolov, Natalia M. Naumova and John A. Nees

Abstract

Ultra-strong laser pulses can be so intense that an electron in the focused beam loses significant energy due to gamma-photon emission while its motion deviates via the radiation back-reaction. Numerical methods and tools designed to simulate radiation-dominated and QED-strong laser-plasma interactions are summarized here.Comment: 12 pages, 6 figure
