We aim at numerically modelling classical and quantum dynamics of charged particles and electromagnetic fields under conditions realised in the interaction of superintense laser pulses with various types of massive targets. The focus of our research is put on an interaction regime where the particles’ dynamics and their radiation emission exert a strong mutual influence on each other. This interaction regime is referred to in the modern research literature as the radiation-dominated regime and attracts a constantly growing interest in connection with the soon expected increase of the record intensities available in laser laboratories. Laser sources of the next generation including the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) pillars in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania, the Apollon laser in France and several other facilities, providing laser powers up to 10 Petawatt are expected to raise the available intensity by two orders of magnitude putting first laboratory experiments in the radiation-dominated regime within reach.
