Abstract: By analytical modeling and numerical simulation, we show that surface modes in moderately overdense plasmas may be excited parametrically by an intense, ultrashort laser pulse. This process has a feedback effect on fast electron generation and may seed a fast distortion of plasma \”moving mirrors.\”
