Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We discuss the first experimental observation of high-order harmonic generation via Compton scattering of a high-intensity laser beam from a laser-driven beam of megavolt-energy electrons. Novel scaling laws governing these processes are also derived theoretically.
