Abstract

The proposed project is focused on particle acceleration and radiation generation in laser-produced plasmas, which is a strongly nonlinear process and requires a kinetic description. Therefore, for a high physics fidelity, first-principles modelling high performance computing is necessary. The project will be focused on generation of attosecond electron pulses, high-harmonic generation and spin-orbit interaction, and modelling of collisions in high-density plasmas.
