Laboratories

To understand the phenomena of our interest, we make use of short pulses of light, from THz frequencies to X-rays, using laboratory-scale sources, various synchrotron facilities and Free-Electron Lasers.


Our home laboratories:

Hamburg Lab

Currently we have two labs from which one is equipped with three and the other with two tabletop sources which are constantly used for various pump-probe experiments in the THz, infrared and visible spectrum and in the femtosecond timescale. Aditional lab space in the new CFEL building will be available soon.

Generation of carrier-envelope phase-stabilized pulses in the mid-IR

In our lab the generation of few optical cycle in the MIR spectral range is achieved by Difference Frequency Generation between two ultrashort infrared pulses ...

XUV sources:

Artemis

at Rutherford-Appleton Laboratory

An ultrafast soft x-ray science facility based on high repetition rate, few optical cycle tuneable laser sources and ultra-fast XUV pulses, produced through high harmonic generation.

Free-Electron Laser:

FLASH

at DESY in Hamburg

FLASH is a high-gain free-electron laser (FEL) which achieves laser amplification and saturation within a single pass of the electron bunch through an undulator. It offerss ultra-short X-ray pulses in the femtosecond range.
