Description

Associates are sought to conduct research on intense radiation (optical through microwave) interacting in various nonlinear media, including plasmas, gases, liquids, and solids. The research environment is one of close collaboration between experimental and theoretical scientists. The propagation of intense lasers in air or condensed matter involves a number of physical processes including nonlinear Kerr focusing, harmonic generation, stimulated Raman scattering, filamentation and self-guiding, multiphoton, tunneling, and/or avalanche ionization leading to plasma formation, and other processes. Finally, the energy deposited by these beams can lead to hydrodynamic expansion, shock, and acoustic generation, as well as the production of various chemical species. Candidates should have experience with experimental, theoretical, or numerical approaches to addressing the physics issues associated with these processes.
