Paper Abstract

Recent advances in short-pulse high-brightness lasers, capable of delivering focused irradiances far in excess of an atomic unit, have opened up an entirely new field in experimental research. Theoretical predictions and new phenomena of super-intense laser- matter processes can now be examined in the laboratory. An experiment on a search for multiphoton-induced inner-shell excitations is briefly described. Possibilities of conducting several fundamental experiments in quantum electrodynamics and nuclear physics are individually discussed.
