Source Technology (IMPRS UFAST core course)


This core course introduces the fundamentals and technical aspects of state-of-the-art pulsed light and electron sources.

We will cover the concepts of:

  • femtosecond oscillators
  • frequency combs
  • chirped pulse amplification
  • optical parametric amplification
  • THz frequency conversion (optical rectification and difference frequency mixing)
  • modern sources of ultrashort electron pulses
  • ultrafast electron diffraction
