Welcome to the Averbukh group website! We are a theory group working on problems in the general area of light-matter interactions. Here is a list of some of our research interests:

  • Quantum wave packets
  • Ultra-fast light-matter interactions, atoms, and molecules in strong laser fields
  • Laser-induced molecular alignment and orientation
  • Laser control of molecular scattering
  • Anderson localization in molecular rotation
  • Laser cooling
  • Quantum Optics
  • Applied optics (atom lithography, near field optics, laser ablation)
