Paper Abstract

The problem of acceleration of electron bunches interacting with powerful laser beam in a plasma-loaded inverse free electron laser (IFEL) is considered. It is shown that the presence of plasma in a free electron laser (FEL) results in a new mechanism of interaction between relativistic electrons and laser soft photons. This interaction maintains the synchronism during the induced absorption of laser photons by electrons. This method can provide high acceleration rates. It is also shown that the efficiency of this interaction increases essentially due to coherent effects in case of truncated dense electron bunches. As a result one obtains high acceleration rates in a wide energy region.
