HHG in PPLN waveguides

While non-perturbative high harmonic generation (HHG) has been a hot topic for decades, cascaded HHG is also a very rich problem and can have much higher efficiency. In collaboration with the Diddams group at NIST, we’ve investigated frequency comb generation … Continue reading

Broadband cavity-enhanced ultrafast spectroscopy

After getting all the systematics under control, we have written a paper on our broadband cavity-enhanced transient absorption spectrometer. This takes CE-TAS from a one-of demonstration to a real chemical physics tool. The paper is available on the arXiv here: … Continue reading
