Abstract

Gravitational wave generation by a strong shock wave in the interaction of high power laser with matter is analyzed in linear approximation of gravitational theory. The analytical formulas and estimates are derived for the metric perturbations and the radiated power of the generated gravitational waves. Furthermore the characteristics of polarization and the behavior of test particles are investigated in the presence of gravitational wave which will be important for the detection.
