Ultrafast Optics Laboratory

Welcome to the Ultrafast Optics Laboratory!

Our group explores optical material interactions to develop novel laser sources in the infrared and mid-infrared wavelength regime. Our research focuses on novel ultrafast devices and how ultrafast and photothermal light interactions can fuel new applications in biomedical imaging and material characterization. We study femtosecond pulse generation techniques (1 femtosecond = 10-15 seconds) to advance photonic technologies that modulate and transmit light efficiently. Compact fiber lasers and laser microscope 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.
