Research Area

Theoretical Atomic, Molecular & Optical Physics

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.
