Librairie Eyrolles - Paris 5e

The Interaction of High-power Lasers with Plasmas

The Interaction of High-power Lasers with Plasmas

334 pages, parution le 07/02/2003


Professor Eliezer provides a thorough self-contained discussion of the physical processes occurring in laser-plasma interactions, including a detailed review of the relevant plasma and laser physics. Laser absorption and propagation, electron transport and the relevant plasma waves are analysed in detail. The physics of the electric and magnetic fields in a laser induced plasma medium, laser induced shock waves, rarefaction waves, heat waves and the related hydrodynamic instabilities (Rayleigh-Taylor, Richtmyer-Meshkov and Kelvin-Helmholtz) are also discussed.
This book is not a summary of research results but rather it is a pedagogical presentation where the basic physics issues are addressed from first principles. Simple models are used wherever appropriate, and the material presented here is a foundation on which the graduate student can build an understanding of the past and present research in this field. For the experienced researcher, this book is a comprehensive and useful presentation of laser-plasma interactions.
