Ultrafast Phenomena At Surfaces

Our Main Research Topic

Our research program is devoted to the investigation of ultrafast phenomena in solids, thin films and nanoparticles. This includes the combination of short pulsed laser systems with surface science technology in order to develop novel methods for measuring ultrafast relaxation processes in real time with high temporal resolution.

The research activities are concentrated in the following areas:

  • Dynamics of electron excitations in solids (metals, semiconductors, organic films)
  • Ultrafast magnetization dynamics
  • Dynamics and manipulation of adsorbate-surface interaction
  • Plasmon dynamics at nanostructured surfaces and deposited clusters 
  • New materials with high spin polarization
