Strong Field Laser Physics
Due to the rapid progress in laser technology a wealth of novel fundamental and applied applications of lasers in atomic and plasma physics have become possible. This book focuses on the interaction of high intensity lasers with matter. It reviews the state of the art of high power laser sources, intensity laser-atom and laser-plasma interactions, laser matter interaction at relativistic intensities, and QED with intense lasers.
Presents an up-to-date introduction to high-intensity lasers and modern applications.Covers a broad range of applications: AMO, plasma physics, condensed matter physics, ultrashort spectroscopy, high-energy and nuclear physics
