The group of Oren Cohen investigates, theoretically and experimentally, various phenomena in high-field physics and ultrafast optics. Our current research goals include: efficient and compact generation of laser-like radiation in extreme ultraviolet spectral region through the process of high harmonic generation, creation and investigation of spatiotemporal optical solitons (light bullets), induction of optical channels in the atmosphere, creation and investigations of self-trapped leaky waves (soleakons), and development of novel techniques for diagnostics of short laser pulses.
