The role of collisional absorption is shown to be important at the beginning of the interaction between a laser pulse and matter, i.e., a plasma, while later on collective absorption phenomena take place. The scope of this paper is to present first results about the long predicted AC-run-away effect, defined as a sudden transition from a collisional absorption regime to a collective one, in ideal circumstances: for an ultrashort laser pulse, i.e., subpicosecond pulses, and with a sharp plasma boundary, i.e., without a laser prepulse. For this purpose, we use a kinetic model based on the ballistic theory. The model is of relevance to laser-matter interaction including laser nuclear fusion or laser particle acceleration.
