Research interests

High temperature and high-density plasma physics, laser fusion

Ultra-short laser-matter interaction, laser-induced phonon excitation, phase transformations and ablation

Nanocluster formation in laser plume created by ultra-short lasers

Generation of high pressure and formation of super-dense materials during confined micro-explosion induced by tightly focused Gauss and vortex laser beams inside a transparent solid

Current projects and collaborations
