- Explore opportunities offered by ubiquitous nature of sub-laser cycle response to strong IR fields for shaping, controlling and imaging quantum matter.
- Understand the link between topological and chiral dynamical phenomena.
- Create new concepts for shaping, controlling, and imaging of “oriented” media: media with orbital momentum, spin, handedness.
- See viewpoint by Olga Smirnova in Nature Reviews Physics
