  • Temporal characterization of femtosecond laser pulses
Prof. Kyung Taec Kim has started his research carrier through his Master and Ph. D. degree courses at KAIST under the supervision of Prof. Chang Hee Nam. He has proposed an attosecond pulse compression using x-ray filters and developed techniques for the characterization of the electron wave packet produced by the attosecond pulses during his degree courses. After he obtained Ph. D, he participated in the project to build the PW laser facility in the Advanced Photonics Research Institute at Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) in Korea. In 2010, he has joined Paul Corkum’s joint attosecond science laboratory at the National Research Council and the University of Ottawa in Canada. He developed optical techniques to measure the space-time coupling of attosecond pulses and arbitrary optical waveforms of light pulses. He also demonstrated the generation of multiple isolated attosecond pulses using the attosecond lighthouse method. Recently, he invented a pulse characterization method called tunneling ionization with a perturbation for the time-domain observation of an electric field (TIPTOE). Prof. Kyung Taec Kim is now an associate professor at the department of physics and photon science of GIST, and He is leading the attosecond science group as an associated director of the center of the relativistic laser science (CoReLS) of the institute for basic science at GIST in Korea.
