Radiation Emission from Plasmas
Plasma is a gaseous collection of charged particles, and intrinsically, an oscillator, having a potential as an ultra-powerful source of electromagnetic radiations.
- Utilizing the laser-plasma systems as novel Terahertz sources with ultra-intense field strength beyond GV/cm, and selective, high frequency in 1 – 30 THz.
- A new way of understanding the unsolved, mysterious astrophysical radio emission from deep space and the Sun in terms of plasma emission.
Particle Acceleration from Laser-Plasma Interactions and plasma-based Laser-amplification
- A portable, compact particle accelerator for advanced light sources and cancer therapy.
- Understanding of exotic particle acceleration mechanism by plasma shock wave
- Theoretical understanding of ultra-intense laser and thin-foil interaction; plasma heating mechanism, light-sail regime of ion acceleration, etc.
