We are investigating the interaction of intense
femtosecond and attosecond light pulses with atoms and molecules. We have
established a quantitative rescattering theory which allows us to extract the
structure information on the target from laser-generated high-order harmonics
and high-energy photoelectrons. Currently we are extending the method to use
ultrashort laser pulses for dynamic chemical imaging with femto- to sub-femtosecond temporal resolutions.
We also investigating electron dynamics using attosecond pulses.
