Ultrafast THz

The ultrafast terahertz (THz) spectroscopy group aims to improve the general understanding of quantum interactions in solid state. To do so we rely on time-resolved THz technologies to map out the ultrafast dynamics of a vast range of microscopic interactions in materials. In some extreme cases, these interactions lead to macroscopic quantum phenomena such as superconductivity or dynamical Bose-Einstein condensation. In addition to exploring these fascinating phase transitions, we also develop optical tools to control them.

Our group is affiliated to the Max Planck - uOttawa Centre for Extreme and Quantum Photonics, the Joint Centre for Extreme Photonics (JCEP) and the Center for Quantum 2D Materials

We also benefit from the infrastructure provided by the Centre for Research in Photonics and the Centre for Advanced Materials Research
