We proposed a new scheme for high-intensity laser-driven electron acceleration in a plasma Our new approach employing the stimulated forward-scattering and injection of relativistic electrons can provide more durable particle acceleration time inside the field of a plasma wave of a much longer length compared to the backward-scattering model where electrons just slip off the wave. For such a realization the injected electrons must be relativistic. The relativity of plasma electron velocities assists at the better convergence of the phase velocities of the plasma wave and of the laser with that of the beam electrons. In Eq. for a breakdown electric field for illustration purpose we took a constant topf field because the exact electric field profile during the instability growth is not known. However, the time interval during which the breakdown field can be gained is much less than the acceleration time what justifies our choice of the field profile. For a better and detailed research we are planing to run simulations of the considered phenomena using the “EPOCH” code.
