I’m a master’s student in experimental physics about to finish my thesis at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society. For my work I use ultrashort laser pulses to see fast processes like crystal vibrations in solids. Understanding of those elementary processes is essential for advancing existing technologies such as photovoltaics and for developing new ones. In my talk I want to show you how we can drive and observe crystal vibrations with a series of laser pulses.
