Laboratory for Ultra Fast Optical Science (UFOs)

Welcome to Kiyong Kim's research group in the Department of Physics and the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics.

The research in our group is focused on ultrafast lasers and optical science. This includes the study of intense, ultrafast laser interaction with atoms, molecules, solids, and plasmas. In particular, we are interested in generating ultrafast light in a broad spectral range, from terahertz (THz) to x-rays, and applying such electromagnetic pulses to study strong THz field physics, ultrafast THz and x-ray spectroscopy, laser-driven charged particle acceleration, ultrafast nano-optics, and high-energy-density laboratory plasma physics.
