Few-Cycle Mid-Infrared Pulses

Currently strong-field physics is shifting towards the use of mid-IR sources.

Chiral Molecules

Chiral molecules exist in two non-identical mirror image forms.

Manipulating helium nanodroplets

Molecules are aligned in the laboratory frame (fixed in space) using laser pulses.

Pump-Probe Spectroscopy

Photolysis of amino acids by femtosecond UV and IR pulses.

Optical Trap

Measuring of forces between hydrophobic surfaces.

Supercontinuum

Use of supercontinuum sources for spectroscopy.

Funding

ERC Advanced Grant: DropletControl
