The laser system in this laboratory is capable of producing pulses of light lasting only 10 femtoseconds (10
s). The pulses are produced by a
(solid-state) laser which is "pumped" by the green light from a 5-watt
Coherent Verdi laser
. Ultrashort laser pulses have many applications in
, and basic scientific research. The equipment in this lab is used to study the
of charges in materials.
