Paper Abstract

We analyzed analytically and numerically the possibility of high intensity laser pulse compression at stimulated scattering from plasma noise and at the non-linear interaction of a short seed pulse with a contra-propagated main long pulse on the inhomogeneous plasma slab. Optimal conditions for highest compression ratio are obtained. Conversion efficiency in these conditions can reach a high level.
