Title: Phase velocity of the TEM (1,0)+TEM (0,1) mode laser and electron accelerations in vacuum

Abstract

Unlike at any single TEM (n, m) mode laser, there is a subluminous phase velocity region located along the central region of a TEM (1,0)+TEM (0,1) mode laser. In conjunction with the high longitudinal electric field in this region, it forms another acceleration channel, which also locates inside the transverse ponderomotive potential trap. Through simulation, it is found that relativistic electrons injected into this acceleration channel can stand at the acceleration phase for a long time and be synchronously accelerated to high energies. Also, the accelerated electrons can be well confined inside the trap avoiding the transverse scattering problem.

  • An ultraintense Gaussian (1,0) mode pulsed laser applied to laser-plasma electron acceleration is investigated based on 2.5-dimensional particle-in-cell simulation (PIC). It has been found that Gaussian (1,0) mode laser pulse may blow out plasma electrons and form two symmetrical electron cavities with an electron wall between them. This electron wall separates two twisting bunches of transverse injected electrons and lets each of them be accelerated in one cavity, respectively. At the front of the wall, a bunch of reflux electrons with a magnetic field contributes to the electron self-bunching effect. This mechanism may generate two symmetrical, high-density, and monoenergetic electronmore » beams with small transverse emittances.« less
  • The aim of this paper is to study possibilities of increasing the radiation energy extraction from active elements of an oscillator or amplifier of repetitively pulsed solid-state lasers. This can be achieved by multiple passing of radiation through the active elements. High quality of a light beam, in this case, is obtained by the use of phase conjugation mirrors (PCM) involving SBS. This paper consists of two sections: Section 2, an oscillator combined with a double-pass amplifier; and Section 3, a four-pass amplifier of a giant pulse and a free- running pulse (both single-frequency and multiple-frequency radiation).

  • We describe the unique properties of a cholesteric liquid crystal as a laser end mirror. We show how it gives rise to TEM{sub 00}-mode operation as well as single-longitudinal-mode operation of a solid-state laser resonator.
  • The spectrum of semiconductor laser arrays with separate contacts is investigated. It is demonstrated that the individual laser currents can be selected such that the array operates in a single longitudinal mode in contrast to the multimode nature of its individual constituents. Moreover, it is possible to tune the lasing frequency by varying the laser currents. Wavelength tuning range of approx.50 A, with tuning rate of approx.5 A/mA, is demonstrated. It is suggested that these spectral features, characteristic of lasers which are coupled in parallel, result from the strong frequency dependence of their spatial mode pattern near the phase-matching frequencymore » of their coupled waveguides.« less
