The Ultrafast Spectroscopy Group @ IISER-TVM

Welcome to the Ultrafast Spectroscopy group website.

Our research is aimed at understanding the Physics of Novel Materials and using this knowledge to develop optical and electronic nanostructure devices. Some of the areas that we are currently working on now are:

  • Light-matter interaction in the quantum regime ( eg. Phonon cavities)
  • Ultrafast optical studies of emergent material systems (eg. Transition metal dichalcogenides)
  • Terahertz spectroscopy and imaging (for fundamental studies as well as Industrial applications)
