Research:
Experimental, Computational and Theoretical Studies on:
     
High gradient acceleration of charged particles, including laser-driven
and electron beam-driven plasma wave accelerators.

Interactions among plasmas, lasers and electron beams to develop novel
diagnostic techniques for measuring plasma wave accelerating
electrostatic fields; and for measuring electron beam emittance.

Plasma wave undulators for generating coherent radiation;
and free electron lasers

Basic plasma studies; plasma breakdown studies; plasma shutter.
