The research group of Professor Chris Barty pursues photonics-based science at the intersection of physics, engineering, biology, medicine and industry. The group’s areas of interest include; mono-energetic laser-Compton x-ray and gamma-ray light sources, ultrashort pulse lasers, ultra-high intensity lasers, high-average-power lasers and the applications of these to high-energy-density science, nuclear photonics, advanced radiography and oncology.

As part of the Convergence Optical Sciences Initiative (COSI) and in association with the UCI Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic, the group’s research laboratory is located at the UCI Beall Applied Innovation center within the UC Irvine Research Park.
