Abstract
Focusing of an intense laser pulse produced by backward Raman pulse amplification (BRA) has been numerically studied using a two-dimensional, axisymmetric kinetic model. The two-dimensional averaged particle-in-cell (aPIC) simulation assumes slowly varying field envelopes and is comprised of one-dimensional sub-models that are coupled radially through laser diffraction. A converging 33 TW seed pulse was amplified up to 1 PW. The focusing of the seed pulse, even when particle trapping was important, was maintained. It was also found that the focusing properties of the pulse tail can lead to some rewidening of the longitudinal pulse duration and some ideas for eliminating this effect were suggested. Simulations performed for various plasma densities and temperatures exhibited robust amplification and pulse shortening.
