PULSE is focused on ultrafast structural and electronic dynamics in materials science, the generation of laser pulses lasting only attoseconds (quintillionths of a second), imaging of single molecules and non-periodic materials, and the study of ultrafast light-induced chemical reactions. We maintain a Google Scholar page which lists publications from PULSE-affiliated investigators.

Current areas of our research include:

  • ATO Attosecond Science
  • Ultrafast Theory and Simulation
  • Solution Phase Chemistry
  • Strong Field AMO Science
  • Strong Field and Nonlinear X-ray Optics
  • NPI Nonperiodic Nanoscale Imaging
  • EIM Excited States in Isolated Molecules
  • Ultrafast Materials Science/Condensed Matter Physics
