Paper Abstract

Electromagnetic wave generation in the extreme ultraviolet (XUV) and infrared (IR) wavelength range occurs during the interaction of intense short laser pulses with underdense plasmas. XUV pulses are generated through laser light reflection from relativistically moving electron dense shells (flying mirrors). A proof-of-principle and an advanced experiment on flying mirrors are presented. Both of the experiments demonstrated light reflection and frequency upshift to the XUV wavelength range (14-20 nm). The advanced experiment with a head-on collision of two laser pulses exhibited the high reflected photon number. IR radiation, which is observed in the forward direction, has the wavelength of 5 μm and dominantly the same polarization as the driving laser. The source of the IR radiation is attributed to emission from relativistic solitons formed in the underdense plasma.
