Abstract

The transport of intense relativistic electron beams in solid density plasma was analyzed. Ponderomotive kinetics modeling code (MPK) for the average relativistic laser-plasma interaction for laser absorption in under-dense or below critical density plasma was proposed. The focused peak intensity of the Petawatt laser system was measured as high as 3.1020W / cm 2. It was found that there was significant lateral electron transport, but of low energy electrons, into the solid.
