Paper Abstract

The possibility of effective electron acceleration in a thin solid film exposed to irradiation by two power ultrashort laser pulses are discussed. The acceleration effect is caused by resonant action of the radiation on electrons oscillating across the film with frequencies close to the laser frequency. The numerical analysis of the relativistic equations of electron motion is conducted.
