New Development and Applications of Attosecond Laser Pulse



        Recent developments in attosecond source and have provided the access for direct measurement of electron dynamics in chemical reactions, studying electronic motion in strong field and probing electron motion within nano-scale structures etc. As a promising field, it attracts comprehensive interesting to generation attosecond laser pulses toward high intensity, short pulse duration, and to manipulate the motion of electron in matter. In this presentation, I will introduce the research activities on attosecond laser at Institute of Physics, Beijing. Based on the report on our attosecond laser facility, new progresses in this field will be further reviewed and prospected
