Description

A Solid Compendium of Advanced Diagnostic and Simulation Tools Exploring the most exciting and topical areas in this field, Laser-Plasma Interactions focuses on the interaction of intense laser radiation with plasma. After discussing the basic theory of the interaction of intense electromagnetic radiation fields with matter, the book covers three applications of intense fields in plasma: inertial fusion, wakefield accelerators, and advanced radiation sources. Collecting contributions from a host of international experts, the book provides a thorough grounding in the fundamental concepts of the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with matter, before moving on to selected advanced topics from the field. It describes state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and experimental techniques used to study laser-plasma interactions as well as simulation tools for modeling these interactions. With a focus on current research trends, this book guides readers to the brink of the most stimulating challenges in the field. It also gives readers an appreciation of the underlying phenomena linking several applications.show more
