People and Research
Our group is international recognized for the development of advance ultra-high intensity solid state lasers that are used as drivers of table-top X-Ray and Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) lasers. The group demonstrated the first table-top soft x-ray laser. These lasers have made possible systems that can image, pattern, and probe chemical composition at the nanoscale.
