Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi

Photonics II [1]

Goals

To provide the basic knowledge necessary for the understanding of the ultrashort light pulse generation mechanisms, their propagation in linear and nonlinear media, their characterization techniques.

To give examples of application of ultrashort pulses to the study of dynamical processes in physics, chemistry and biology.

 

Detailed Program

1.   Properties of ultrashort laser pulses

  • introduction to ultrafast optics;
  • linear propagation      equation for ultrashort pulses; dispersion and techniques for its      compensation;
  • nonlinear ultrashort      pulse propagation in second order media; three-fields coupled equations;      second harmonic generation, sum and difference frequency generation;
  • nonlinear ultrashort      pulse propagation in third order media; Kerr effect, nonlinear      Schrödinger equation, solitons, self-phase-modulation;
  • ultrashort pulse      characterization techniques: non-collinear and interferometric      autocorrelation, FROG, SPIDER

2.   Ultrashort pulse generation techniques

  • mode-locked lasers and passive      mode-locking techniques;
  • ultrashort pulse      amplification, chirped pulse amplification technique;
  • optical parametric amplifiers;
  • carrier-envelope phase      and frequency combs

3.   Applications of ultrashort pulses

  • introduction to ultrafast      spectroscopy techniques;
  • degenerate, two-colour      and broadband pump-probe;
  • density matrix formalism      for the decscription of light-matter interaction;
  • four-wave mixing and      photon echo;
  • ultrafast processes in      metals and semiconductors;
  • introduction to      femtochemistry and femtobiology.

 

Laboratory activities

There will be a laboratory session using advanced research instrumentation developed in the Physics Department.

 

Prerequisites

The course requires basic knowledge of the foundations of classical electromagnetism, quantum electronics (light-matter interaction, principles of lasers) and quantum mechanics.
