Comparison of stochastic and deterministic electron motion in an intense laser pulse



This dataset provides a comparison between the classical Landau-Lifshitz theory; a semi-classical extension to it; and a stochastic single photon emission model. The stochastic model has been averaged over 10,000 initially-identical electrons. Electrons with an initial Lorentz factor \gamma = 500 (around 250 MeV) are collided head on with a 10-cycle (27 fs) circularly-polarised laser pulse with a_0 = 200, modelled by a plane wave.
