Welcome to the Department of Physics.
The Intense Laser Physics Theory Unit (ILP) conducts research on the interaction of laser light with matter. There are only a few centers around the world engaged in research similar to the work of Drs Grobe and Su, that focus on the interaction between extremely intense laser light with atoms. Their goal is to push the envelope of fundamental scientific knowledge and answer questions about the interaction of lasers with materials in scenarios yet unexplored.
