Abstract

In the last fifteen years stimulated Raman backscattering (SRBS) in plasma has been intensively elaborated as a promising tool on the way towards high intense lasers. There are several advantages of this technique in comparison to the world-wide used the CPA-Chirped Pulse Amplification technique for a laser amplification. We present the principle of the SRBS technique, the best results so far obtained in theory and experiment, and a possible SRBS project at the PALS Research Centre in Prague.
