Femtosecond Dynamics

Welcome to the femtosecond laser lab!

We are a rather young and hopefully fast emerging group at TU Graz that focuses on the investigation of processes that are induced after light-matter interaction. For more information about our research topics feel free to visit the Research section. For latest tidings and publications, see News, and if you are interested in joining and expanding our team, check out our Open positions.

2020-01-09: New arcitle online in J. Phys. Chem. Letters
We are delighted that our collaboration with the group of Leticia Gonzáles (Vienna) resulted in the publication of this letter article. In the paper we closely monitor the ultrafast population transfer in nearly degenerate photoexcited states of acetone via a combination of time resolved photoelectron spectroscopy and surface hopping simulations.

2020-01-03: New article online in J. Chem. Phys.
A new article in which we describe ultrafast dynamics of atoms inside helium nanodroplets is now online. In this publication we extend our previous results and focus on the excess energy redistribution following indium photoexcitation.

2019-04-30: New article online in J. Phys. Chem. A.

We present our newest results on indium in helium nanodroplets. In this publication we describe an abnormal relaxation behaviour of the spin-orbit split ground states of indium inside the superfluid droplets.

2019-03-18: Prize awarded for ultrafast spectroscopy.

Markus receives the Josef Krainer Würdigungspreis for his work on ultrafast phytodynamics in helium nanodroplets.
