Title Plasma scale-length effects on electron energy spectra in high-irradiance laser plasmas
Abstract An analysis of an electron spectrometer used to characterize fast electrons generated by ultraintense (1020Wcm−2) laser interaction with a preformed plasma of scale length measured by shadowgraphy is presented. The effects of fringing magnetic fields on the electron spectral measurements and the accuracy of density scale-length measurements are evaluated. 2D EPOCH PIC code simulations are found to be in agreement with measurements of the electron energy spectra showing that laser filamentation in plasma preformed by a prepulse is important with longer plasma scale lengths (>8 μm).
