High-power $$gamma$$-ray flash generation in ultraintense laser-plasma interactions

Nakamura, Tatsufumi; Koga, J. K.; Esirkepov, T. Z.; Kando, Masaki; Korn, G.*; Bulanov, S. V.

When high-intensity laser interaction with matter enters the regime of dominated radiation reaction, the radiation losses open the way for producing short pulse high power $$gamma$$ ray flashes. The $$gamma$$-ray pulse duration and divergence are determined by the laser pulse amplitude and by the plasma target density scale length. On the basis of theoretical analysis and particle-in-cell simulations with the radiation friction force incorporated, optimal conditions for generating a $$gamma$$-ray flash with a tailored overcritical density target are found.
