Design and operation of high-power solid-state laser systems; generation, ultrafast detection and application of x-ray and vuv pulses from short-lived high-density plasmas

Dr. Maksimchuk's Ph.D. research involved theoretical and experimental investigation of x-ray radiation transport in a hot dense plasma of the thermonuclear targets. His current research interests include the following areas: Ultrashort solid state lasers for the laser-plasma interaction; Physics of laser-plasma interaction at ultrahigh intensities; Development and applications of ultrafast short-wavelength radiation sources; X-ray, XUV and optical diagnostics of the laser produced plasma; Ultrafast detection of x-ray and XUV radiation from the subpicosecond laser-plasma interaction; X-ray radiation transport in hot, dense plasma. Currently Dr. A. Maksimchuk is a responsible for the development and operation of 10 TW Ti: sapphire - Nd: phosphate glass laser.
