QUANTUM ELECTRONICS

Research areas

Prof. Spielmann's research of is focused on the generation and application of ultra-short pulses from the infrared to the x-ray regions, including:

  • generation and amplification of ultrafast optical pulses and application in medicine
  • nonlinear optics in structured materials
  • generation of spatially and temporally coherent XUV radiation
  • laser plasma physics for realizing x-ray sources and Raman amplifiers
  • application of XUV radiation for functional imaging of nanoscale materials

Teaching fields

Prof. Spielmann's lectures center on:

  • atomic and molecular physics
  • fundamentals of modern photonics
  • XUV and x-ray optics
  • modern methods of spectroscopy

Research methods

The equipment of Prof. Spielmann's laboratories allows for studying the structural dynamics of atomic and solid systems as well as imaging nanostructures:
