Ultrafast control of electrons in materials with the electric field of light

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperOther

Abstract

Electronics technologies rely on the control of electric current in solid-state devices. The faster currents can be turned on and off, and the lower the energy dissipated in the process, the higher the performance and efficiency of the system. Here, we review the feasibility of generating and controlling electric current in semiconductors and insulators with few-cycle optical waveforms, within a single cycle of light, and on a timescale of 1 femtosecond.
