Enhanced coherent Thomson scattering in the few-cycle regime

Abstract

We study x-ray production by coherent nonlinear Thomson scattering of few-cycle laser pulses from relativistic electron sheets. For an electron sheet thicker than the wavelength of the x-ray, the scattering efficiency is found to increase by two orders of magnitude for single-cycle laser pulses, as compared with longer pulses. This enhancement is attributed to the suppression of the destructive interference during the scattering process, as well as the frequency downshift related to the ultrabroad spectra of single-cycle pulses. The x-ray amplitude in this nonadiabatic regime is calculated and agrees with that from the particle-in-cell simulation. These results can be useful for designing more intense, shorter attosecond x-ray sources.
