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


Electrons have been shown to radiate x-rays strongly when accelerated and scattered by intense laser light. Theory predicts the effects of radiation reaction will be measurable as the scattering light intensity is increased to the relativistic level.
