    Several kinds of experiments have been done relating to the second harmonic emission from a plasma produced by a 1 μm laser pulse of 30 psec. Complicated spectra of the second harmonic have been observed above ∼1013 W/cm2. It has been concluded that their production mechanisms are...

    Studies of the ion acoustic decay instability (IADI) are reported in which the target material of the laser-produced plasma was varied. The IADI was monitored by observing the Stokes peaks of the second-harmonic spectrum. Its threshold was quite low ( ≈ 2 × 10[sup 13] W/cm²) even in...

    In this paper, we consider second harmonic generation and its phase-matching in an underdense plasma in the presence of a wiggler magnetic field. Wiggler magnetic field plays both a dynamic role in producing the traverse harmonic current and a kinematical role in ensuring phase-matching. The...

    When an intense laser pulse interacts with homogeneous plasma embedded in a transverse magnetic field, transverse current density oscillating with frequency twice that of the laser field is set up. This leads to generation of second harmonic radiation with significant conversion efficiency.

    One of the methods of obtaining a highly efficient second-harmonic generation (SHG) for laser pulses with random amplitudes and durations is mathematically modeled. The essence of the method proposed consists of the use of quadratic nonlinearity of the medium under conditions of a large mismatch...

    A laser plasma X-ray source of narrow spectral range in the water-window region, is reported using a 50–50 (atomic fraction) mixture of gold-copper mix-Z planar target. Plasma was produced using the second harmonic beam of an Nd:glass laser focused to an intensity ∼1013 W/cm2 on the...

    The plasma wave produced in a stimulated Raman back scattering process in plasma is seen to be effective in the resonant Raman upshifted third harmonic generation of the same laser or of another laser of a slightly lower frequency. The process requires plasma density slightly lower than the...

    We experimentally demonstrate a new regime of high-order harmonic generation by relativistic-irradiance lasers in gas jet targets. Bright harmonics with both odd and even orders, generated by linearly as well as circularly polarized pulses, are emitted in the forward direction, while the base...
