The project consists in adapting the successful ultrashort pulse characterization technique d-scan to a new wavelength regime, the mid infrared wavelength range. This project includes a lot of interesting optics, second harmonic generation, ultrashort laser pulses, with hands on experience on a modern laser system.
Understanding the "rings" in high-order harmonic generation
The project consists in learning to use a newly-developed MATLAB code for the propagation of high-order harmonic generation in gases, with aim to understand the apparition of rings in space and frequency spectrum. This project is mostly about simulations but could include participating to experiments as well.
