About the Jaron-Becker Group
Agnieszka Jaron-Becker is Associate Research Professor of Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and JILA Fellow. In JILA, she serves as co-director of JILA’s Ultrafast Theory Group, which specializes in theoretical studies of ultrafast processes in atoms, molecules, and nanostructures. These ultrafast processes are induced, observed, and controlled by ultrashort intense laser pulses. The laser frequencies studied range from the far infrared through the optical to the soft x-ray region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
- Collinear and non-collinear generation of EUV high harmonics with circular polarization
- Efficient soft X-ray high harmonic generation in multiply-ionized plasmas in the ultraviolet regime
- Optimizing isolated broadband attosecond pulse generation via time-gated phase and group velocity matching
- ...and more
- Approximate methods based on Intense Field Many Body S- matrix (method called sometimes Keldysh-Faisal-Reiss (KFR) or Strong Field Approximation (SFA))
- Floquet basis functions (complex Gaussian and complex Sturmian) based code
- Wavepacket propagation using finite difference and finite element algorithms
- ...and more
- Electron-ion recombination
