In plasmas, the relativistic flying mirrors are thin and dense electron or electron—ion layers accelerated by the high intensity electromagnetic waves up to velocity close to the speed of light in vacuum; in nonlinear-media the refraction index modulations are induced by a strong electromagnetic wave. The reflection of the electromagnetic wave at the relativistic mirror results in its energy and frequency change. In the counter-propagation configuration the frequency of the reflected wave is multiplied by the factor proportional to the gamma-factor squared. This scientific area promises the development of the sources of ultrashort X-ray pulses in atosecond range. Expected intensity will reach the level at which the effects predicted by nonlinear quantum electrodynamics start to play the key role. In the co-propagating configuration, the energy of the electromagnetic wave is transferred to the ion energy providing a highly efficient acceleration mechanism.
