Our group develops and utilizes new light sources and techniques to follow the motions of electron, holes, and nuclei in molecular and condensed matter systems on ultrafast time scales. Developing new technologies and physics ideas go hand in hand with gaining insight into ultrafast dynamics. We have built two novel instruments in the lab, one for Cavity-Enhanced Ultrafast Optical Spectroscopy, and another for XUV Time-Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy (TRPES). Both are based upon our home-built frequency comb lasers. Up-to-date developments and publications can be found at the group website here.
