Kinetics of ultrashort relativistic electron pulses emitted from solid targets
Physical Review E
Interaction of ultrashort high-intensity laser pulses with solid targets generates relativistic electrons which escape from the target. The kinetics of these ultrashort electron pulses is governed by self-fields generated by the charge of the electron cloud. In this paper an analytical theory is developed which allows calculation of electron trajectories, electron fluxes, and electron spectra at any distance from the target. The theory is exact for two limiting cases: (a) a monoenergeticdoi:10.1103/physreve.70.036409 pmid:15524648 fatcat:fz4bklapqzgezmf2fe5l27fzqm
