Quantum and UltraFast Optical Spectroscopy

Physics Graduate student Katie Koch and Professor Ajay Ram Srimath Kandada work on research together in the laser lab in the Olin Physics Laboratory on Tuesday, June 6, 2023.

Emerging optoelectronic and photonic technologies rely on the control of photo-excitation dynamics in semiconducting materials. We elucidate the chemical and physical factors that govern these dynamics in a wide class of materials through advanced optical spectroscopic techniques. Our primary tools are based on sources of ultrafast optical pulses and quantum entangled photons in the visible and near infrared spectral regions.
