Numerical modelling of Compton Scattering in ultra-intense laser pulses

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We examine current methods of numerically implementing Compton scattering in the context of intense laser-matter interactions. In a recent publication [1] it has been shown that a commonly used approach generates the correct spectra in nearly all cases, except those when the harmonic structure is important. Here we provide an explanation for this using an alternative, classical argument.
