Short Wavelength Sources and Attosecond/High Field Physics

This group focuses on activities related to the development and application of high intensity lasers as well as novel XUV and x-ray sources. The group also focuses advances in traditional short wavelength sources and attosecond pulse generation.

Short Wavelength Sources and Attosecond/High Field Physics (OH)

This group provides a focus for activities related to the development and application of high-intensity lasers as well as novel XUV and x-ray sources. Specific interests include the technology of high-intensity, ultrafast lasers, the physics of high-intensity light interactions with matter and the generation of high brightness, short wavelength radiation with ultrafast lasers. Another area of interest for this group is advances in traditional short wavelength sources, including insertion devices for storage rings (undulators and wigglers), plasma X-ray lasers, electron beam based sources and X-ray free electron lasers. At the leading front of the attosecond science, the group will also embrace attosecond pulse generation and its surface- and volume-interaction with solid state, liquid and gaseous materials, including biological and organic materials and nanomaterial structures. The group intends to serve fundamental researchers as well as the technology and industrial community.
 

Upcoming Event

From Academia to Industry: Some Insights for Early-Career Scientists

When: Wednesday, 13 March 2024, 16:15 – 17:15
Where: Olympia Mancini 1

Choosing a career path after graduation is always a tough decision for young scientists starting their careers. The main question is often: academia or industry? During this event held at the Optica High-Brightness Sources and Light-Driven Interactions Congress, fellow researchers who have already taken the former route share their experiences by answering questions like: How to stay in a laser-related career? What does industry offer for early career scientists interested in laser physics? What is it like to be in industry after academia? Join us for these talks and the following networking event if you want to get some insight and help in making a decision!

Please RSVP for this technical group event at bit.ly/HBpanel to let us know you will be attending.
