bibo_abstract:
- Relativistic harmonic generation by the scattering of very-high-intensity laser
light from fast free electrons is investigated theoretically. A general solution
for the trajectory of an electron, moving initially with an arbitrary velocity
in a light pulse of arbitrary intensity and polarization, is presented. This solution
generalizes the classical analysis of Eberly [Progress in Optics, edited by E.
Wolf (North-Holland, Armsterdam, 1969), Vol. 7] and that of Sarachik and Schappert
[Phys. Rev. D 1, 2738 (1970)] for the trajectory of an electron initially at rest.
The result is then applied to the case of effective harmonic generation in a monochromatic,
circularly polarized field under three different initial conditions for the electron,
namely, (a) electron initially at rest, (b) electron initially moving in the direction
of light propagation (and opposite to it), and (c) electron initially crossing
the radiation beam at right angles. Angular distributions of the harmonics generated
by the scattering process are presented in terms of the power scattering cross
section in each case. Effects of increasing the light intensity and/or the initial
electron speed and/or direction on the angular distributions are discussed. It
is found, among other results, that at laser intensities higher than, say 10(18)
W/cm(2), the low-order harmonics are suppressed while the higher-order harmonics
are enhanced.@eng
