Laboratory of advanced spectroscopic methods

Optical spectroscopy represents one of the most important diagnostic tools in physics. The capability of non–interfering measurements together with the vast range of detection schemes allows applications in a variety of experiments. Notably the progressing development in the semiconductor technologies and micro–fabrication pushes the experimental limits offering better and faster detectors like the new types of imaging arrays (e.g. intensified or electron multiplied charge coupling detectors) or light sources like Sb–based multi-quantum well lasers. This allows achieving broader spectral coverages or faster acquisition times by keeping or even increasing the signal to noise ratio.

Research topics:

  • Absorption spectra of small molecules
  • Modeling of molecular spectra
  • Development of VECSEL source
  • CRDS in the plasma afterglow
