The research and educational activities of the group cover a wide spectrum of basic and applied electromagnetic phenomena including such diverse topics as plasma physics with application to fusion energy generation, nonlinear optics with application to high speed optical fibre communication and microwave breakdown phenomena with applications to space borne RF equipment. A common denominator in the activities is the fact that the physical processes involved are nonlinear, i.e. the electromagnetic properties of the medium are determined not only by the medium itself, but also by the presence of the electromagnetic field. Such nonlinear properties appear in many basic as well as applied physical situations.
The research is performed in collaboration with research groups abroad as well as with national and international industrial companies. Examples of such collaborations are JET and Culham Science Centre in England, Institute of Applied Physics in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, Nonlinear Science Centre in Canberra, Australia, ACREO in Stockholm and Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales in Toulouse, France.
