Ultrafast Dynamics in Condensed Matter

THz electromagnetic pulse

Welcome to the group of Ultrafast Dynamics in Condensed Matter!

Our research efforts focus on the use of strong laser fields (in particular in the near-infrared and terahertz range) to manipulate quantum materials on ultrafast time scales. The response of these materials is probed with femtosecond lasers or femtosecond x-ray pulses generated at free electron lasers. Particular focus is dedicated to the investigation of spin and phonon dynamics in condensed matter.

Principal Investigator: Stefano Bonetti


Our group gives one invited presentation and presents two posters at the Gordon Research Conference on Ultrafast Phenomena in Cooperative Systems. Congratulations to Martina and Matteo!
