John Tisch is a Professor of Laser Physics in the Physics Department and an experimental physicist working in the QOLS Group within the Blackett Laboratory Laser Consortium (BLLC). His research interests are ultrafast laser physics and high-intensity laser-matter interactions, especially the use of femtosecond laser pulses to generate coherent x-ray pulses of attosecond duration and to observe and manipulate the motion of electrons in matter on the attosecond time-scale and on the Ångstrom length-scale (1 attosecond = 1 billion-billionth of a second).
