text: 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.
