Prof. Nirit Dudovich in the I-CORE group research:
Our group studies basic phenomena in strong field light-matter interactions, focusing In particular on the generation and measurement of attosecond processes. We develop new approaches to observe these phenomena and manipulate their evolution in time and space.
