||Strengthening our expertise in device physics and numerical computing, we will continue to investigate the device designs and simulations. The main thrust of this year's projects is lined up along the following areas:
We will be interested computer simulations of the relativistic effects of multi-photon interaction of light and matter such as multiphoton ionization, laser acceleration, pair-plasma production, relativistic self-focusing. and electron-positron creation electrodynamics.
- Photonic crystal devices: theory, simulation and fabrication: With an effort of developing a prototype semiconductor LED with a significantly enhanced light-extraction efficiency.
One of the major projects carried by the Director of the Laboratory himself is publication of a textbook on graduate-level textbook
- Principles of Photonics, and quantum information:
