Abstract : An electron acceleration method is investigated which employs a short (tau sub L about = 2 wp-1 about = 1 picosec), high power (P or = 10 to the 15th power W), single frequency laser pulse to generate large amplitude (E or = 17 (square of (omega/omega sub p) GW), relativistic optical during may be used to prevent the pulse from diffracting within the plasma.
