<About the Research>
We are doing theories and simulations of the light-matter interaction. In particular, we are a world-leading laboratory in the field of attosecond science, aiming to control the movement of atoms and electrons in materials with ultrashort pulse and high intensity laser. My research themes can be classified into three: theory, implementation, and applications. First, we are developing original theories for accurately solving time-dependent Schrodinger equation to describe light-matter interactions. With theory, you can make a breakthrough using papers and pencils only. Second, the computer implementation can connect theory with reality. Appealing in the third topic, applications, is that you can use original theory and codes to predict real-world experiments. We are also challenging quantum computer simulations of quantum many-body dynamics.
I’ll continue to take pencils and papers, and a bit of computers, to surprise the world with new physics.
