Abstract This paper describes the use of interactions between laser fields and charged relativistic particles inside a passive gas medium for high-energy acceleration. Suitable geometrical configurations are discussed quantitatively, and consideration is given to gas breakdown and collision effects. It is shown how currently available laser powers can yield large electron acceleration gradients and total energy gain while controlling beam spreading by the inherent focusing properties of the fields.
