Research Summary

We apply laser spectroscopy to problems in condensed matter physics, to develop new ways of understanding the physical properties of solids. Current projects include:

  • Transient photoconductivity of Mott insulators
  • Terahertz spectroscopy of metals and superconductors
  • Terahertz magneto-optic spectroscopy
  • Pump-probe spectroscopy of Mott insulators

We also have an ongoing collaboration with Honeywell to develop applications of terahertz spectroscopy in the paper industry.
