Ultrafast, Strong-Field Investigation of Nanosystems

Here I present work investigating the evolution of various nanosystems in extremely intense, ultrafast laser pulses. We study the dynamical processes initiated in these nanosystems over five order of magnitude of peak laser intensity, from 10^10 W/cm2 to 10^15 W/cm2. Specific processes include: thermal evolution and damage of nanowires under irradiation of a train of intense pulses, photoelectron reqscattering on the surface of nanoparticles, plasmonic enhancements of photoionization and the ultrafast formation of nanoplasmas from nanoparticles.
