ENEE 789M: Intense Laser-material Interactions and Applications
This course will review the underlying principles for intense laser-material interactions, from the weakly nonlinear regime in gases and solids, to the strongly nonlinear, relativistic regime in plasma. Four basic applications, spanning this intensity range, will guide the discussion: harmonic generation, laser ablation, laser-induced fusion, and laser-driven particle acceleration.
ENEE 680 and ENEE 381 (or equivalent), or permission of instructor.
There will be no textbook.
Several review papers to be distributed in class, plus several books in library on course reserve.
There will be five or six graded problem sets
