We shape ultra-short laser pulses
Ultra-short pulse lasers have become indispensable in research and industry. They are used, for example, in modern microscopy methods, in the observation of fast chemical reactions where temporal information is to be evaluated, or in the material processing of ever smaller structures for medical technology or for quantum computers.
Here at the Chair of Laser Technology and Spectroscopy, we are working on the development of increasingly high-performance ultrashort pulse laser systems. These are based, for example, on thin-disk geometry or new types of laser crystals. On the other hand, the focus is also on opening up new fields of research, for example through non-linear frequency conversion or laser pulse compression.
A significant further development of the double-frequency comb technology stands out in particular.
