NONLINEAR OPTICS

Research areas

The central theme of Dr. Paulus's research is strong-field and attosecond laser physics. The Nonlinear Optics group currently works on the following research projects:

  • attosecond pulse generation via relativistic laser surface interaction
  • precision measurement of the absolute phase of few-cycle pulses
  • phase-dependent ionization and dissociation of fundamentally important atomic and molecular systems
  • relativistic ionization dynamics
  • strong-field QED
  • x-ray polarimetry with an extinction ratio of 1010

Teaching fields
