Research interests: Attosecond science: high-¨harmonic and attosecond?pulse generation and application. High-¨field physics: high-¨power lasers, relativistic laser?plasma interaction, synchrotron¨?type intense x?ray radiation from solids, laser¨?driven particle acceleration. Ultrafast and nonlinear optics: few-¨cycle optical pulse generation, optical parametric chirped pulse amplification, femtosecond laser filamentation, nonlinear fiber optics. Quantum optics: entanglement of quantum states, biphoton states in spontaneous parametric light scattering.
