The imprint of laser induced coherent structural dynamics in VO2 on the broad-band reflectivity

Ultrafast Optical Dynamics of Solids

Prof. Dr. Simon Wall

    Activities:

We study new methods to manipulate and measure dynamics within solids using optical techniques on the ultrafast timescale. Our goal is to manipulate the magnetic, structural and electronic states of matter with ultrafast electric fields to induce new properties when materials are driven out of equilibrium. In particular, we are interested in dynamics at the earliest timescales, where the coherence still plays a role, how changes in an ordered state propagate both spatially as well as temporally, and how the interface between excited and non-excited regions react.

These properties are measured in the time domain with a combination of linear and non-linear spectroscopic techniques that are performed in the lab, as well as experiments based at larger scale facilities around the world.
