Due to the incessant development in the short pulse laser technology (1018-1019 W/cm2) accessible today, electron beams can be generated and accelerated with higher efficiency and low divergence in vacuum and plasma for various applications in medicine, science and technology, material science, industry, cancer therapy and fusion. Earlier, conventional methods proved to be unsuccessful in vacuum to accelerate electron with high energy due to bulky size. Recently, chirped pulse amplification process improves the power (10 TW) of ultra-high short pulse tabletop laser. These ultra-short intense laser pulses are utilized for the generation of monoenergetic electron beams of mega electron volts. electron beam to excite ions to high energy. The key idea to excite large amplitude electron plasma waves by using short laser pulse (LWFA) in high density plasma was proposed by Tajima and Dawson in 1979 (Tajima & Dawson, 1979). The exciting results that have so far been accomplished; present great assurance for future plasma accelerators by providing compact ‘table-top’ electron accelerators. However, there was no such a short pulse laser in that era, and therefore experiments involve beat wave to excite the plasma waves.
