Paper Abstract

In this contribution new physical effects are presented which are observed when different materials are irradiated with high-intensity femtosecond laser pulses. A general classification of regions on the intensity scale is given and experimental results concerning higher-harmonic generation in high-Z materials with laser intensities exceeding 1019 W/cm2 are discussed. Two alternative approaches to the generation of such intensities are described.
