Chunlei Guo studies high-intensity femtosecond laser interacting with matter, including gas, solid, and plasma phases. Some examples include, in gas phase, understanding multielectron effects of atoms and molecules in a variety of strong field phenomena; in solid materials, studying electronic and optical processes in the highly nonequilibrium regime; in various matter, exploring novel processes of generating nonlinear optical radiation.
