Generation of giant attosecond pulses using ultra-intense laser interacting with solid-density plasmas


The high-intensity lasers of the next generation are expected to provide intensities sufficient for causing strong and deep perturbations of the overdense plasmas generated from the ionization of solids. The resultant highly-nonlinear regimes of interaction could open up new routes towards various applications, including the creation of coherent X-ray sources of unprecedented intensity. In particular, theoretical studies predict an existence of a unique regime of interaction that provides the way to generate attosecond bursts with peak intensity of up to three orders of magnitude higher than the incident laser radiation has. The talk will be devoted to the theoretical basis and prospects of this approach.
