Paper Abstract

Electron bunch acceleration in the space-charge field generated by laser pulse in an underdense plasma is investigated. The analytical method is developed and used to describe the energy spectrum of ultra-relativistic electrons accelerated by the one-dimensional fast intense plasma wave of the arbitrary form. The peculiarities of electron energy spectra for different length of acceleration in the linear and nonlinear plasma wave are considered.
