Abstract

© 2018 IOP Publishing Ltd. In the calculation of the reflection coefficient for the partial reflection of an electromagnetic wave from a breaking plasma wave in section 2.1 Low Intensity regime (as ≤ 1), an incorrect value for γph was used. The two sentences after equation (3) should be corrected to Taking θ = 0 and using equation (2) giving γph ≈ 2.1 for Np = 1 and ωs/ωpe = 1.57 we get that Rδ ≈ 9.47 × 10-2. This can be seen to be in rough agreement with the ratio of the reflected spectrum broad peak around 15≲kx/ks ≲ 24 (blue solid line) to that of the original pulse kx/ks ≈1 (thick solid line) in figure 4. In addition, upon closer examination of figure 6, the last sentence in section 2.2. Near-relativistic Intensity regime (as ≈ 1) should be corrected to It can be seen that the ratio of the reflected spectrum region aound kx/ks ≈10 (blue solid line) to that of the original pulse kx/ks ≈1 (thick solid line) in figure 6 is roughly 10 times lower than that of the low intensity case. These modifications do not change our conclusions.
