Fourier Optics Study of Traveling-Wave Excitation at Short-Wavelength Plasma-Lasing
Traveling-wave excitation close to the speed of light implies small-angle target-irradiation. Yet, short-wavelength lasing needs large irradiation angles. Pulse-front back-tilt is considered to overcome such trade-off. Pulse-front tilt by means of compressor misalignment was found effective only if coupled with a strong front-end imaging/focusing component.
