Nonlinear Thomson scattering in relativistic laser plasma interaction

Abstract

Nonlinear Thomson scattering radiation has been observed from relativistic laser plasma interaction. We found that this radiative process is dominant for very high intensity at which point the relativistic scattering of the laser light originates from MeV energy electrons inside the plasma.
