Abstract

The results of simulation of the ultra-intense laser pulses interaction with overdense plasma are presented. The effects of radiation propagation deep into plasma as well as long-living vortex formation, plasma boundary instability and the surface structures formation are obtained. The mechanisms of the wave field energy transformation into the overdense plasma energy are discussed.
