Implementing photon from laser beam in Madgraph

Asked by PRADIPTA GHOSH on 2020-05-09

Hi,

I am trying to study e gamma and photon-photon collision at the linear collider using Compton backscattering from laser sources. Could you please help me with how to implement such a process at the Madgraph?
The current version of Madgraph has the provision to study e gamma and photon-photon collision using photon from an electron.

Best regards,

Pradipta

Hi,

No one ever volunteer to validate the implementation so this is not available in the official version.
However the full implementation is done and should be working in principle.

You can find that version here:
https://code.launchpad.net/~maddevelopers/mg5amcnlo/laser_beam_option <https://code.launchpad.net/~maddevelopers/mg5amcnlo/laser_beam_option>
If you want to validate it then please tell me, I will update that branch first with the latest version of the code (this was done in 2013)

Cheers,

Olivier
