Research Information:

The interaction of light with matter on very small length scales is of interest at the forefront of science and for myriad applications from telecommunications to biotechnology. Underlying this is a need to understand the details of how light interacts with materials. Dr. Ramunno applies theoretical methods and large-scale computation to address several key questions: how laser machining of materials can be controlled to create nanoscale devices; how nanoscale particles interact with new groundbreaking intense UV and X-ray sources; and determining the limits of nanoscale imaging of cells and tissues using nonlinear optics, and how can these be overcome.
