Professor Adjoint, Departments of Physics and Electrical and Computer Engineering
The general area of ultrafast optics is my primary research interest. This includes the use of ultrafast pulses to study light-matter interactions, as well as their production and manipulation. Our primary tool for studying light-matter interaction is multidimensional Fourier transform spectroscopy, which we are currently applying to both semiconductor nanostructures and atomic vapors. We are working on developing a new type of mode-locked fiber laser to produce ultrafast pulses and on manipulating them by pushing pulse-shaping techniques to their ultimate limit in terms of spectral resolution.
