New results obtained in the field of extreme nonlinear optics and novel radiation sources 1 The discovery of new principle of generating sub-femto- and zepto-second pulses and ultra-high magnetic field, using cyclotron-like radiation of highly-relativistic ionized electrons driven by a circularly-polirized petawatt laser 2 The prediction of nano-tsunami shock waves in the Coulomb explosion of nanoscale clusters ionized by high-intesity laser 3 The proof-of-principle experiment and theory of medical application of transition radiation in multilayer structures for Bi-chromatic x-ray contract diagnostics 4 Exploration of water-window Cherenkov sources, based on atomic shell resonances, for bio-applications 5 Exploration of the potential of generating the pulses beyond zepto-second domain.
