This course will provide an overview of selected techniques used to probe the microscopic properties of condensed matter. The course will cover the use of these methods at steady state as well as their extension to transient measurements of non-equilibrium phenomena in condensed matter. [more]

Non-linear optics

IMPRS-UFAST core course
The course provides an overview of the working principles of nonlinear optics with a focus on the basic physical concepts. We start from introducing relevant topics in linear optics (e.g., Maxwell equation, Lorentz model, Crystal optics, Optical pulse and dispersion), and continue to discuss key concepts in nonlinear optics such as phase matching and quasi phase matching, second-order nonlinear effects, and third-order nonlinear effects.
