About this product
- DescriptionThis book is dedicated to the relativistic (laser intensity above 1018 W/cm2) laser-plasma interactions, which mainly concerns two important aspects: ion acceleration and extreme-light-field (ELF). Based on the ultra-intense and ultra-short CP lasers, this book proposes a new method that significantly improves the efficiency of heavy-ion acceleration, and deals with the critical thickness issues of light pressure acceleration. More importantly, a series of plasma approaches for producing ELFs, such as the relativistic single-cycle laser pulse, the intense broad-spectrum chirped laser pulse and the ultra-intense isolated attosecond (10-18s) pulse are introduced. This book illustrates that plasma t only affords a tremendous accelerating gradient for ion acceleration but also serves as a vel medium for ELF generation, and hence has the potential of plasma-based optics, which have a great advantage on the light intensity due to the absence of device damage threshold.
- Author BiographyLiangliang Ji received his B. Sc. in physics from University of Science and Technology of China in 2006. He obtained his Ph. D. in physics in July 2011, from Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. During his Ph.D. study in the group of Prof. Baifei Shen, he mainly worked on new particle acceleration schemes and extreme light field generation based on relativistic laser-plasma interaction. Later on, he won Alexander von Humboldt fellowship and became a post-doc fellow working with Prof. Alexander Pukhov at Duesseldorf University in Germany. His recent research interests include laser-ion acceleration and the effects of quantum electrodynamics (QED) in strong relativistic laser-plasma interaction.
