Laserlab Stockholm (LLS) consists of closely collaborating labs employing coherent light sources in basic and applied research. The experimental methods available at LLS, namely, time-resolved angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (PI Oscar Tjernberg), ultrafast electron microscopy (PI Jonas Weissenrieder), time and space-resolved luminescence (PI Saulius Marcinkevicius), THz time-domain spectroscopy (PI Valdas Pasiskevicius) allow elucidation of ultrafast dynamics of charge carrier and lattice subsystems taking place in solid-state materials after optical excitation. These methods are extremely informative and useful in designing novel functional materials, including engineered nonlinear optical structures using ferroelectrics and semiconductors (PI Carlota Canalias). Such engineered nonlinear materials give novel functionality to nonlinear optical devices, therefore enabling novel application areas (PI Valdas Pasiskevicius). SSL lab for material processing (PI Michael Fokine) has deep experience in laser processing and 3D printing of different glasses and composites which are employed for novel functional optical fibers and distributed sensing. LLS also maintains expertise in solid state and fiber laser design (PI Fredrik Laurell) which is used for realizing custom laser sources.
