Abstract

The beat wave accelerator1 depends on the generation of a large amplitude plasma wave with a phase velocity close to the velocity of light c. The plasma wave (ω/sub p/,k/sub p/) is generated by beating colinear laser beams (ω1,k1) and (ω2,k2) with ω/sub p/ = ω1-ω2, k/sub p/ = k1-k2. Since the process involves both large amplitude transverse and longitudional waves, various nonlinear instabilities associated with either wave may occur. The object of this article is to discuss some of the processes that may compete with the beat wave generation listing their threshold and growth rate
