Ultrafast Optics Laboratory

Welcome to the Ultrafast Optics Laboratory!

Our group focuses on exploring optical material interactions to develop novel laser sources in the infrared and mid-infrared wavelength regime. We explore femtosecond pulse generation techniques (1 femtosecond = 10-15 seconds) to advance photonic technologies that manipulate and transmit light efficiently. Compact fiber lasers and integrated microphotonic systems are pursued for applications in communications, biomedical diagnostics and treatment, frequency metrology, environmental sensing and spectroscopy.

The research is of interdisciplinary nature and combines various fields of optics and photonics with semiconductor physics and nanotechnology. We are continually looking for enthusiastic new members to join our group, from undergraduate, graduate students to post-doctoral researchers. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact me!
