Exact closed-form solutions to Maxwell’s equations are used to investigate electron acceleration driven by radially polarized laser beams in the nonparaxial and ultra-short pulse regime. Besides allowing for higher energy gains,such beams could generate synchronized counterpropagating electron bunches.
