Within this ultrafast lab we can align up to five different laser sources, ranging from 700-1600 nm in wavelength, through two inverted microscopes to provide spatial resolution of approximately 1 micron at the sample. With picosecond and femtosecond operation, a wide range of optical measurements can be taken. Multiphoton fluorescence, Second- and Third-Harmonic Generation (SHG and THG), Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS),Coherent Anti-stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) and time-resolved pump-probe measurements are all taken within this single facility. With such a broad range of available wavelengths, coupled with the high spatial resolution of the microscope (with raster scanning capability), this lab offers researchers the ability to probe a variety of different biological and solid-state systems.
