Motion and emission of a classical relativistic particle in a nonuniform laser wave
Abstract
In accordance with an idea proposed by Baryshevskii (1979) that highenergy particles can channel through a nonuniform laser wave, a theoretical analysis of their motion and emission is carried out according to classical theory. For a relativistic particle in an 'optical channel', the effective potential, the Lindhard angle, and the minimum turning radius are obtained. The particle radiation is shown to be concentrated in two frequency regions. The component of higher frequency can exceed the frequency of the laser wave by a factor of (E/mcsquared)squared. It is also shown that, for a particle moving in a field produced by the superposition of a circularly polarized laser wave and a timeindependent nonuniform magnetic field, growth in the depth of the potential well is possible with increasing particle energy.
