Abstract

Both particle-in-cell and Vlasov simulations of the collective absorption of p-polarized intense laser light incident on a plasma with a steep density profile show the fractional absorption decreasing with intensity for large angles of incidence. Here an analytical model is developed that indicates that this effect for a high-temperature plasma (T-e greater than or equal to 2.5 keV) is connected with the conversion of a large fraction of the incident energy into harmonic emission. Good agreement between the results of Vlasov simulations and those of the nonlinear analytical model are obtained. (C) 1997 American Institute of Physics.
