Andreas Becker

My research interests are related to the theoretical analysis and numerical simulation of ultrafast processes in atoms, molecules and clusters interacting with intense laser pulses. Laser systems currently generate light pulses with field strengths exceeding that of the Coulomb field within an atom or molecule. Pulse durations are as short as a few femtoseconds (10-15 sec) or even less in the attosecond regime, which correspond to the time scales of electron and nuclear dynamics in materials. My group pursues theoretical studies on the coherent control of chemical reactions, the observation of correlated electron dynamics in atoms and molecules, the imaging of molecular dynamics, and the propagation of ultrashort intense laser pulses. We often work in close collaboration with experimental groups.
