S15080: Put Light to Work: Exploring the ultrafast with light in HSSP Summer 2022 (Jul. 09, 2022)
Come and explore the topics of light, matter, and their interactions! In this lesson we will cover topics including the nature of light, the principle of laser systems, the interaction between light and matter and beyond. You will refresh your understanding of seemingly familiar phenomenon such as reflection and absorption of light. Specially, we will focus on a specific area of study - ultrafast spectroscopy - and bring you a peek into the cutting edge where researchers use light to study the nature of matter.
