Title: Layered structure in the interaction of thin foil with two laser pulses

An interesting layered structure of multiple high density layers are formed when two counter-propagating circularly polarized laser pulses with the same polarization direction irradiate on an ultra-thin foil. This structure changes periodically. For light atoms most of which electrons may be fully ionized, this layered structure can keep for dozens of laser periods after the laser-foil interaction. This interesting structure may have potential applications.
