Abstract
We consider collisions of relativistic electrons with atomic targets in a laser field assuming that the parameters of the latter are such that the field does not influence the target directly. Concentrating on target transitions we show that they can be substantially affected by the presence of the laser field. This may occur either via strong modifications in the motion of the relativistic electrons caused by the laser field or via the Compton effect when the incident electrons convert laser photon(s) into photons with frequencies equal to target transition frequencies.
