All-optical plasma turbulence

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We consider an all-optical bump-on-tail instability. For weak nonlinearity, there is momentum transfer with no variation in intensity. Above a threshold, modulations appear. Borrowing plasma language, these represent weak and strong regimes of optical turbulence.
