Multifocal terahertz radiation by intense lasers in rippled plasma



AbstractThis paper presents a theoretical model for the generation of terahertz radiation by cosh-Gaussian laser beams of high intensity, which are capable of creating relativistic–ponderomotive nonlinearity. We find the components of the terahertz radiation for the relativistic laser plasma interaction, i.e. beating of the two lasers of same amplitude and different frequency in under dense plasma. We plot the electric field profile of the emitted radiation under the effect of lasers index. By creating a dip in peak of the incident lasers’ fields, we can achieve multifocal terahertz radiation.
