Ultrafast Laser Laboratory
NSF Funded Major Research Instrument Facility
Ultrafast amplified laser system for nonlinear optics and time-resolved spectroscopic studies of condensed matter systems
Award number ECCS #1827846
This Major Research Instrumentation award supports the acquisition of an ultrafast amplified laser system enabling studies at the intersections of condensed matter systems in physics, materials science and engineering, chemistry, chemical engineering, biology, and bioengineering. The ultrafast laser facility, while enhancing areas of nonlinear optics and time-resolved spectroscopic studies of condensed matter systems, complements existing research centers involved with nanomedicine, nanotechnology, and nanoscience at MU. The ultrafast laser system is applicable to a broad range of multidisciplinary problems, including transport of carriers in organic electronics and quantum materials, quasiparticle dynamics in multifunctional materials, second harmonic generation (SHG) and higher harmonic generation (HHG) from organic and 2D materials, laser pulse shaping, and basic research on the spectroscopy of all materials - from hard to soft condensed matter materials.
