Paper Abstract

In the present paper it is offered to significantly increase target absorption and to optimize parameters of a relief and basic part of a target so that an absorbed energy is transferred to an accelerated particles and reflected (transmitted) energy is radiated as attosecond pulses. The choice of optimum characteristics of a target is made by means of analytical and multi-dimensional numerical modeling of a target set with characteristics near to optimum values. It is shown, that at reflection from a target the laser wave of relativistic intensity is effectively converted in sequence of electromagnetic pulses of tens nanometer length, the following one after another through the period of an initial laser wave. Dependence of its parameters on angle of incidence and laser intensity is investigated.
