Paper Abstract

The Extreme Light Infrastructure project ELI1 is aiming at laser intensities up to 1026 W/cm2. At such high intensities novel aspects of laser-matter and laser-vacuum interaction have to be considered.2 In particular, cascades of electrons, positrons, and photons may arise that are capable of absorbing the laser energy efficiently. In the present paper we report about first simulations of cascading in strong laser fields.
