Welcome to the "Femtoscience - Ultrafast dynamics, spectroscopy and coherent control" Group
The group "Femtoscience - Ultrafast dynamics, spectroscopy and coherent control" studies the ultrafast dynamics of prototype molecules and biomolecular systems in real time, develops and applies multidimensional spectroscopy methods, and explores schemes for the optimal control of chemical systems.
One of our major research fields is the Time-Resolved Vibrational Spectroscopy (TRVS). We use and develop laser spectroscopic techniques such as (Pump-)Four-Wave-Mixing spectroscopy as well as (Pump-) Impulsive Vibrational Spectroscopy with time resolution down to 15 femtoseconds, to obtain a detailed microscopic understanding of formation and dissociation processes of elementary chemical reactions and of the energy flow in biomolecules.
Another field in group is the shaping of ultrashort pulses and the application of shaped pulses to molecular systems. We employ feedback-controlled optimization strategies to generate tailored pulses that steer a quantum mechanical system into the desired reaction channel.
Additionally, we employ tailored broadband femtosecond pulses for chemical analytics in miroenvironments with high selectivity, allowing chemical mapping in laser scanning microscopy.
We have a PostDoc position opening on May 2021. Please click here.
