Nonlinear Laser Matter Interactions 

Phillip Sprangle and Antonio Ting

Intense laser radiation can interact in a highly nonlinear manner with various types of matter including: metal, dielectric and the atmosphere. One example is the nonlinear generation of ultra-broadband radiation. These and other processes are extremely interesting and have potentially important applications. The research will include theoretical, computational, and experimental work. The general research areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Ultra high-intensity laser matter interactions
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Novel optical, infrared, and microwave radiation sources
