Abstract

Here we propose a new diagnostic method for the magnetic field inside an expanding plasma, based on the idea of photon acceleration, or photon frequency shift of radiation coming out of the plasma. Examples of application for laser–target interaction in the Peta–Watt regime, and for intense magnetic fields in astrophysical environments are considered.
