Couverture de l’ouvrage Progress in Ultrafast Intense Laser Science XIV

This 14th volume in the PUILS series presents up-to-date reviews of advances in Ultrafast Intense Laser Science, an interdisciplinary research field spanning atomic and molecular physics, molecular science, and optical science, which has been stimulated by the rapid developments in ultrafast laser technologies. Each chapter begins with an overview of the topics to be discussed, so that researchers unfamiliar to the subfield, as well as graduate students, can grasp the importance and appeal of the respective subject matter; this is followed by reports on cutting-edge discoveries. This volume covers a broad range of topics from this interdisciplinary field, e.g. atoms and molecules interacting in intense laser fields, laser-induced filamentation, high-order harmonics generation, and high-intensity lasers and their applications. 

Kaoru Yamanouchi has been Professor of Chemistry at The University of Tokyo since April 1997. His research fields are in physical chemistry and AMO physics, especially gas phase laser spectroscopy, chemical reaction dynamics, and intense laser science. In 1996, he launched a new research project to investigate how atoms, molecules, and clusters behave in an intense laser field whose magnitude is as large as that of a Coulomb field within atoms and molecules. By developing new experimental techniques such as mass-resolved momentum imaging, pulsed gas electron diffraction, and coincidence momentum imaging, he has continued a successful exploration of the new research field of ultrafast intense laser science. Among his discoveries, ultrafast structural deformation of molecules and ultrafast hydrogen atom migration within hydrocarbon molecules are particularly noteworthy. He has also demonstrated that the ultrafast structural changes of molecules can in principle be probed in real time with femtosecond temporal resolution using a method called laser-assisted electron diffraction.

Philippe Martin is the Laser Interactions and Dynamics Laboratory Director of CEA-Saclay since 2013. His background relies on the interaction between strong laser fields and matter. He started with theoretical studies on laser assisted collisions in presence of strong electromagnetic fields. After a post-doctoral position at the "Université Libre de Bruxelles", he obtained a permanent position at CEA-Saclay where he developed a new thematic involving condensed matter systems. In the 2000's, by improving for the first time the temporal contrast of strong laser pulses thanks to a so-called “Double Plasma-Mirror,” he has with his group demonstrated that with this "pulse cleaning method", it is now possible, using ultra-short pulses (a few ten’s of fs), to reach electromagnetic energy fluxes of 1019 W/cm2 on intact solid-density targets. On such a short time scale, plasma
