Backward Acceleration of Electrons by a Radially Polarized Ultra-Intense Laser Focus During Ionization of High Charge State of Neon (JTh5A.95)
Presenter: Nour Hissi, The Ohio State University
We investigate direct acceleration of electrons produced during ionization of Neon gas using tightly focused and radially polarized Petawatt-class short pulse lasers. Backwards propagation is demonstrated at specific initial conditions of Neon ions.
