Prof. Chowdhury’s Lab is part of AFOSR MURI (Multi-disciplinary Univeristy Research Initiative) program headed by Prof. Dimauro of OSU Physics. The Program focuses on probing intense field light matter interaction in Mid-IR frequencies. Femto-solid lab will primarily study how femtosecond pulses in Mid-IR wavelengths causes damage to solids.
