Abstract

The origin of electron trapping at the back of a 'bubble', which is formed when the electrons are expelled from an under-dense plasma by an intense laser pulse, is investigated using a reduced model wakefield. The subsequent acceleration and transverse oscillation produces betatron radiation. Such electromagnetic radiation emitted by trapped electron in an ionic bubble is estimated using the Lienard-Wiechert potential
