Unformatted text preview: xtremely high light intensity drives ma]er anharmonically (get higher order modes) • These new modes are at diﬀerent wavelengths. Ship colours! • We push the extreme: go from 800 nm to 300 μm (1 THz light) 12 Extremely short bursts of THz frequency light Use this intense short bursts of light to frequency ship the laser pulse to the far-‐infrared. THz pulses: Sub-‐picosecond, broadband pulses of light with central frequency in the THz range Ideal technique to access very low energy electrodynamics of materials on extremely short Kme scales. 13 Things I study with THz light: Nonlinear THz InteracAons And many more… Learn about cutting-edge research
over lunch with cool profs January 14-18, 2013
www.mcgill.ca/science Next few classes we’ll look at some “classics” • Quick quantum review – Schrödinger equaKon, wavefuncKons and wavepackets. – The Hydrogen atom – PerturbaKon theory • Go buy the book! 16...
