Coherent control in intense laser matter interactions via polarization manipulation

Via Zoom

Franklin Dollar Associate Dean of Graduate Studies, School of Physical Sciences; Associate Professor, Department of Physics & Astronomy; University of California, Irvine High intensity laser matter interactions with short pulse durations are the epitome of extreme science, at ultrafast timescales, extremely high energy densities, and relativistic effects defining the regime. In this talk, I will

The Evolving Nuclear Fuel Cycle – Challenges and Opportunities

3105 Etcheverry Hall 3105 Etcheverry Hall, Berkeley, CA

Dr. Monica C. Regalbuto Idaho National Laboratory Director, Integrated Fuel Cycle Strategy The United States is pursuing an aggressive plan to combat climate change by reducing carbon emissions in which nuclear power is set to play a vital role.
