This group investigates ultrafast and highly non linear interactions between intense ultrashort laser pulses and matter.  Such interactions/phenomena happen at the timescales of nanoseconds (10-9 s; ns) to attoseconds (10-18 s; as) and these processes can be revealed only with the help of light pulses having special spatio-temporal properties. Therefore, ultrafast (nanosecond or femtosecond) lasers are employed in these research to reveal the ultrafast electronic and acoustic processes in various media (mostly condensed matter). The important areas of research under this group are:

  • High order harmonic generation
  • Intense-laser matter interaction
  • Ultrafast phenomena
  • Laser produced plasma
  • Nonlinear optics
