Research interests and key publications:
Dr. Christov's research has been
directed to development of advanced methods for generation and amplification of
ultrashort coherent pulses
in the visible and x-ray spectral
domains. He and his collaborators proposed how linearly polarized femtosecond
IR pulses can be used to
generate isolated attosecond x-ray
pulses by atoms and free relativistic electrons, and how to amplify these
pulses by strong-field quasi-phase
matching in modulated waveguides. He
currently is working on theoretical models to better understand light-matter
interaction in attosecond
time scale that include development of
new time-dependent quantum Monte Carlo methods.
