Paper Abstract

The net inverse bremsstrahlung (NIB) acceleration of high-energy electrons traveling in isotropic turbulent plasma waves and a laser light in the ultra-high intensity regime where the e times potential amplitude of the laser wave is much greater than the electron rest energy is inves­ tigated by means of quantum kinetics based on the Dirac equation. The NIB force is independent of the spread of the electron beam energy, and increases with the electron beam energy. However, the NIB force scales as the inverse of the laser intensity.
