Applied Physics

Applied Physics - Noel Valero Photography

Lasers are important as diagnostic tools and in instruments whose use spans a spectrum from materials fabrication to medical applications. The underlying physics is applied to diverse areas such as advanced propulsion systems, X-ray generation, and understanding the properties of complex materials and fluids. This area includes laser technology and applications; X-ray lasers; flow field and combustion diagnostics; multiphoton processes and nonlinear optics; high-energy lasers; atomic and molecular spectroscopy; molecular dynamics; plasmadynamics; high field phenomena; controlled laser-driven molecular and acoustic processes; picosecond and subpicosecond sources; high-energy incoherent source development; advanced spacecraft propulsion; space plasma physics; active space experiments; electric discharge and radiation studies.
