About Jaron-Becker

Agnieszka Jaron-Becker is Associate Research Professor of Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and Associate 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.... read more
