Time-resolved scanning magneto-optical microscopes at Physics and Astronomy, University of Exeter

We operate several time-resolved (pump-probe) imaging systems offering a range of measurement modes. The systems are used for studies of electron, spin, and lattice dynamics in the time and space domains, with time resolution down to 50 fs and spatial resolution down to 300 nm. We image ultrafast dynamics excited in samples either optically or by pulsed or cw microwave magnetic fields. The measurements are performed at bias magnetic fields up to 1 Tesla (soon, up to 5 Tesla) and temperatures down to 6 K._ The areas of investigations range from magnonics and ultrafast magnetic switching in magnetic nano-structures to phase change materials._
