Introduction to theory and experimental basis of both weakly and highly ionized plasmas. Instabilities, plasma waves, nonlinear effects, controlled thermonuclear fusion.
This course is a focused introduction to the emerging field of attosecond optics and its applications. It targets senior undergraduate students and graduate students who want to enter the field. The organization of the course builds from basic underlying theory to more complex ideas related to attosecond optics. The generation of attosecond optical pulses requires…

The study of those processes in Nonlinear Optics, which are characterized by propagation of light in the media with the size considerably larger than the wavelength. “The difference between Holography and Nonlinear Optics, if exists at all, is quantitative only, with Holography being characterized by slower build-up time” – Nicolaas Bloembergen. The Course “Stimulated and…
