Paper Abstract

Simulations of a linearly polarized laser wave in the range I(lambda) 2 is contained in (1018 - 5 multiplied by 1019) Wmicrometers 2/cm2 normally incident on a slightly overdense plasma have been performed with a 1.5 D relativistic particle-in-cell code. These kinetic simulations support the existence of relativistic self induced transparency, and complement past analytical work on the subject. Electron heating, laser absorption and ion motion are considered.
