High intensity laser produced plasmas are capable of accelerating particles to high energies over very short distances. Mono-energetic electron beams could be produced by this method (Nature 2004). Recently, the scientists demonstrated that the laser beam was able to drive the accelerating structure, called a wakefield. As the beam propagates it changes from being circular in cross section to being slightly elliptical, which indicates that the electron beam is initially generated behind the laser beam but as it accelerates moves forward, it gains energy from the electric field of the laser. Broadband radiation, meanwhile, is emitted transverse to the motion of the electrons when they are initially trapped and accelerated. Our group would like to have more researches about the new physics in laser plasma interaction science and present the experimental applications and theoretical results.
