Our inspiration
Our inspiration is the art of science, the joy of discovery, and the desire to gather knowledge. If you are seeking an exciting education, an interesting thesis topic, or an innovative research project then you have all the reason to contact the laser physics group.

Besides being involved in fundamental science you also have various opportunities to become engaged in projects which benefit the economy and the society.
Our group
We are a team of junior and senior researchers focusing on different aspects of optics, from quantum optics to ultrafast science. We are very happy to host two NSF assistant professors (Prof. André Stefanov and Prof. Davide Bleiner) and one ERC junior grant holder (Prof. Andrea Cannizzo).
Our research
Since 2010 we are coleading house of the NCCR MUST (Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology) and as such we have a strong focus on ultrafast methodology and science. Specifically, our research interests are:
-Novel optical fibers
-Femtosecond, picosecond, and frequency stabilized fiber laser systems
-Optically pumped soft X-ray lasers
-Soft X-ray imaging, microscopy, and inspection
-Interaction of entangled photon states with matter
-Quantum imaging
-Ultrafast 2D NIR/VIS/UV spectroscopy
-Time-resolved Raman spectroscopy
-Nonlinear THz science
-THz metamaterials, THz plasmonics, and THz nano-optics
