Ultrafast Spectrscopy with Frequency Combs

We are a new group in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Georgia interested in exploiting the properties of frequency comb lasers for improving techniques in ultrafast spectroscopy. We are building up a new ultrafast and ultrasensitive transient absorption spectrometer. This will involve building Yb:fiber laser frequency combs and coupling them to optical resonator cavities to enhance both the power and sensitivity of the technique. More details on specific projects will be posted as we get going.
