Abstract / Description:The direct interaction of nuclei with superintense laser fields is studied. We show that present and upcoming high-frequency laser facilities, especially together with a moderate acceleration of the target nuclei to match photon and transition frequency, do allow for resonant laser-nucleus interaction. These direct interactions may be utilized for the model-independent optical measurement of nuclear properties such as the transition frequency and the dipole moment, thus opening the field of nuclear quantum optics. As an ultimate goal, one may hope that direct laser-nucleus interactions could become a versatile tool to enhance preparation, control, and detection in nuclear physics.
