Welcome to the Dollar Research Lab

The Dollar Research Lab specializes in the interaction of light at extremely high intensities with the fourth state of matter, plasma. These highly nonlinear interactions result in the generation of unique sources of radiation in a compact space. X-rays, ions, electrons, and neutron beams are created from sources smaller than millimeter-scale. There is a potential for these sources to have wide-reaching applications including medical physics, fusion energy, and to probe the fastest and smallest events in the known universe.
