Transcending the Invisible

Robert Jones

Robert is a Postdoctoral research associate in the Attosecond Quantum Physics Laboratory where he works with theoretical and computational methods specialising in condensed matter and light – matter interactions.

His research is focused on ultrafast processes occurring within matter when subject to high intensity laser light, and the nature of optical fields which may lead to exotic phenomena. To achieve this, he brings together multiscale numerical modelling techniques from purely quantum mechanical to finite element method.

His research interests include:

  • Plasmonic metallic nanoparticles
  • Multiscale modelling of nanoarchitectures
  • Strong-field phenomena
  • Structured light
  • Nonlinear and chiral optics
