Distinguished Speaker Lecture Series: Plasma Physics at the Atomic Level

Professor Paul Corkum
Princeton University

Optical-field multi-photon ionization, generated by high- power short-pulse lasers, is used to probe the attosecond evolution of small systems, allowing the orbitals of single electrons to be photographed, will be discussed.


Professor Paul Corkum is the director of the Attosecond Science Program at the National Research Council of Canada and a professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Iowa. He has won numerous awards, including the Canadian Association of Physicists’ gold medal for lifetime achievement in physics in 1996. He is a member of the Royal Societies of London and Canada and an elected member of the U.S. Academy of Science. He is best known for introducing many of the concepts in strong field atomic and molecular science.
