## Abstract

SUMMARY Using an analytical model we discuss the parametric excitation of pairs of electron surface waves (ESW) in the interaction of an ultrashort, intense laser pulse with an overdense plasma which has a step-like density profile. The ESWs can be excited either by the electric or by the magnetic part of the Lorentz force exerted by the laser and, correspondingly, have frequencies around $\omega/2$ or $\omega$, where $\omega$ is the laser frequency.
