Ultrafast Terahertz Spectroscopy

Dr. David J. Hilton,, 934-8189

We seek to understand the fundamental processes in solid state materials which govern their electronic properties.  This has wide ranging applications to threat detection, superconductivity, quantum phase transitions, and quantum computing.
