Extreme Light for Nanostructures
In the Extreme Light for Nanostructures group at the University of Kassel, we strive to fade the lines between Physics and Engineering. We implement ultrashort laser pulses to modify properties of materials for practical applications. We want to understand how these very highly intense pulses interact with matter and we shape them temporarily and spatially, so we can modify in a custom way their properties.
To this end, we work closely with our Institute of Materials Engineering and its extensive arsenal of analytical methods, as well as the Experimental Physics department "Femtosecond spectroscopy and ultra-fast laser control" with its femtosecond laser system and material processing platform.
We are also a secondary member of the Institute of Physics.
