Production of High Harmonic X-ray Radiation from Non-linear Thomson Scattering at LLNL PLEIADES

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We describe an experiment for production of high harmonic x-ray radiation from Thomson backscattering of an ultra-short high power density laser by a relativistic electron beam at the PLEIADES facility at LLNL. In this scenario, electrons execute a ''figure-8'' motion under the influence of the high-intensity laser field, where the constant characterizing the field strength is expected to exceed unity: a{sub L} = eE{sub L}/m{sub e}cw{sub L} {ge} 1. With large a{sub L} this motion produces high harmonic x-ray radiation and significant broadening of the spectral peaks. This paper is intended to give a layout of the PLEIADES experiment, along ... continued below
