Influence of spin-laser interaction on relativistic harmonic generation

The emission of harmonic radiation by an electron oscillating anharmonically in a linearly polarized plane ultra-intense laser field is studied. The electron is described as a classical relativistic particle with a magnetic moment in order to include the spin-laser interaction. In contrast to ordinary Maxwell dynamics the motion can become three-dimensional depending on the orientation of the spin. Additional harmonics are visible in the direction of the electric field of the laser where no harmonics of polarization along the magnetic-field direction are to be expected.
