Research summary

My current research aims to study OAM effects in high-intensity laser-solid plasma interaction via theory, simulation and also experiment. The potential applications are widespread; ion acceleration, X-ray generation and Inertial Confinement Fusion will be considered here. In addition, some important phenomena in astrophysics can be better understood using the insight developed in this study.

Some key words of my research interests are: Laser plasma accelerator, Laser plasma radiation, Particle-in-cell Simulation, OAM effects in LG laser-plasma interaction, quantum radiation and radiation reaction force, Spin effects in extremely intense laser interaction and astrophysics, spin radiation theory.
