Abstract

Recently, we pointed out that using the state-of-the-art (or soon-to-be) intense ultrafast laser technology, violent acceleration that may be suitable for testing general relativistic effects can be realized through the interaction of a high intensity laser with an electron. In particular, we demonstrated that the Unruh radiation is detectable, in principle, beyond the conventional radiation (most notably the Larmor radiation) background noise, by taking advantage of its specific dependence on the laser power and distinct character in spectral-angular distributions. In this paper we review the basic concept and include additional calculations on the electron acceleration.
