Ultrafast Optical Phenomena (OU)

Ultrafast Optical Phenomena (OU)

This group is interested in the rapidly expanding field of ultrashort pulse lasers and other broadband coherent sources and their application to problems in science and technology. Current themes involve methods for using short pulses for studying the dynamics and structural changes of systems on very short timescales, including novel methods for probing physical and chemical processes with extreme temporal resolution, and applications of ultrashort pulses in photonics, communications, microscopy, biomedicine and other emerging areas.

Congratulations to Shailendra Varshney, the new chair of the Ultrafast Optical Phenomena Technical Group! If you are a member of this group and have ideas for activities to help engage this community, please share them with Shailendra as he begins his term as chair.

You are invited to attend a free technical group webinar on 11 November 2015 at 12:00 EST. In this webinar hosted by the Nonlinear Optics Technical Group, Dr. Giulio Cerullo from the Politecnico di Milano will review research aimed at designing and implementing optical parametric amplifiers for the generation of broadly tunable few-optical-cycle pulses.

Register now to attend the Ultrabroadband Optical Parametric Amplifiers: Toward Single-Cycle CEP-Controlled Pulses webinar.
