Effects of laser wavelength and density scalelength on absorption of ultrashort intense lasers on solid-density targets

Abstract

Hot electron temperatures and electron energy spectra in the course of interaction between intense laser pulse and overdense plasmas are reexamined from a viewpoint of the difference in laser wavelength. The hot electron temperature measured by a particle-in-cell simulation is scaled by $I$ rather than $I \lambda^2$ at the interaction with overdense plasmas with fixed ions, where $I$ and $\lambda$ are the laser intensity and wavelength, respectively.Comment: 12th International Congress on Plasma Physics, 25-29 October 2004, Nice (France
