Title: Combined role of frequency variation and magnetic field on laser electron acceleration

Abstract

Laser-induced acceleration of an electron injected initially at an angle to the direction of a short laser pulse with frequency variation in the presence of an axial static magnetic field has been investigated. Due to the combined effect of frequency variation of the laser and a magnetic field, the electron escapes from the laser pulse near the pulse peak. The electron gains considerable energy and retains it even after passing of the laser pulse in the presence of magnetic field in vacuum. The frequency variation plays an important role to enhance the electron energy in the presence of a static magnetic field in vacuum.
