Development of the Technique to Steer Electrons by the Ultrahigh Optical Field

Research Project Outline

Sub-100 attosecond, soft Xray pulses and optical field shapes on demand are achieved by combining the advanced high power laser technology with the precise optical synthesizing. "An attosecond oscilloscope" is developed by using a 100- attosecond pulses as a pump and trigger, and a saw tooth optical field as a sweep. With this system, the high-speed electron motion induced by Auger process and chemical reaction is recorded as continuous snap shots. In addition, the technique to steer electron motion in materials on an attosecond time scale is developed towards the verification of a new function.
