402-0528-12LUltrafast Methods in Solid State Physics6 KP2V + 1UY. M. Acremann, S. Johnson
KurzbeschreibungThis course provides an overview of experimental methods and techniques used to study dynamical processes in solids. Many processes in solids happen on a picosecond to femtosecond time scale. In this course we discuss different methods to generate femtosecond photon pulses and measurement techniques adapted to time resolved experiments.
LernzielThe goal of the course is to enable students to identify and evaluate experimental methods to manipulate and measure the electronic, magnetic and structural properties of solids on the fastest possible time scales. These "ultrafast methods" potentially lead both to an improved understanding of fundamental interactions in condensed matter and to applications in data storage, materials processing and computing.
InhaltThe topical course outline is as follows:

0. Introduction
Time scales in solids and technology
Time vs. frequency domain experiments
Pump-Probe technique

1. Ultrafast processes in solids, an overview
Electron gas
Spin system

2. Ultrafast optical-frequency methods
Ultrafast laser sources
Broadband techniques
Harmonic generation, optical parametric amplification
Advanced pump-probe techniques

3. THz-frequency methods
Mid-IR and THz interactions with solids
Difference frequency mixing
Optical rectification

4. Ultrafast VUV and x-ray frequency methods
Synchrotron based sources
Free electron lasers
Higher harmonic generation based sources
X-ray diffraction
Time resolved X-ray microscopy
Coherent imaging

5. Electron spectroscopy in the time domain
SkriptWill be distributed.
LiteraturWill be distributed.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesAlthough the course "Ultrafast Processes in Solids" (402-0526-00L) is useful as a companion to this course, it is not a prerequisite.
