Paper Abstract

The generation of attosecond pulses with an amplitude greatly exceeding the driving field of an ultrarelativistic laser pulse at oblique irradiation of a solid target is investigated. We develop a universal model of the process, the so-called relativistic electronic spring, which is different from the conventional concept of an oscillating mirror. It follows from the model that there exists a parameter region where the energy conversion from the femto- to the attosecond regime is maximal. Based on the study we propose a new concept of laser pulse interaction with a target having a groove-shaped surface, which opens up the potential to exceed an intensity level of 1026 W/cm2 and observe effects due to nonlinear quantum electrodynamics with upcoming laser sources.
