Philip Howard Bucksbaum

Advisory Board - Photon Science

I am the Marguerite Blake Wilbur Professor in Natural Science at the Departments of Physics, Applied Physics, and Photon Science, Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

I study the dynamics of electrons in ultrastrong electromagnetic fields produced by intense lasers in conjunction with relativistic particle beams. The phenomena of interest include non-linear Compton scattering, the strong-field Breit-Wheeler process, and ultimately QED cascades.  I participate in a research program at SLAC to detect and measure these phenomena.  I also study femtosecond and attosecond strong-field effects in bound electronic systems including atoms and molecules.
