On the possibility of obtaining relativistic velocities of the metal-dielectric front as a result of evaporation of a film by high-intensity light
The possibility of achieving relativistic (and even faster than light) velocities of the evaporation front of a metal film due to transverse action of high-intensity light is indicated. Preliminary experiments on obtaining the high velocities are described. Metal-front velocities higher than 4 χ 109 cm/sec were obtained. The possibility of using such moving fronts for Doppler conversion of frequencies and faster-than-light emission and acceleration of particles is indicated.
