Paper Abstract

It is shown that in a strong circularly polarized laser field, classical electron motion around the ions can occur. The non-relativistic scattering by these electrons in plasma has a certain (Thomson) cross-section only in the limit of a very strong field (it is practically the case of relativistic motion of electrons). In a circularly polarized field with an amplitude on the order of the inneratomic one, the cross section of this process is less. In the spectrum that the scattering of this field gives in plasma, there are non-ion satellites along with the basic frequency.
