Ultrafast Spectroscopy based on Femtosecond Lasers（基于飞秒激光的超快光谱研究）
Over the last three decades, femtosecond lasers have proved to be versatile tools suitable for a variety of spectroscopic applications. However, there are still many aspects that call for improvement. In this talk, I will present our recent work on two types of ultrafast spectroscopy based on femtosecond lasers, namely, time-wavelength optical sampling (TWOS) spectroscopy and few-cycle pump-probe transient reflectivity (PPTR) spectroscopy. I will also discuss potential areas where collaborations can be developed.
Dr. Lingze Duan received the B.S. degree in physics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 1995 and the Ph.D degree in electrical engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA in 2002. From 2002 to 2004, he was a Post-Doctoral Associate with the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE), Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, where he conducted research on octave-spanning optical pulse generation and characterization. From 2004 to 2007, he was a post-doctoral researcher with the Department of Physics, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, where he developed ultrastable diode laser systems based on high-Q optical cavities. He joined the Department of Physics, University of Alabama in Huntsville, Huntsville, AL, as a faculty member, in 2007, where he has been an Associate Professor since 2013. He has published over 60 refereed technical publications. His research interest includes ultrafast spectroscopy, frequency metrology with femtosecond frequency combs, fiber optic sensors, and novel applications of optics in astrophysics.
Dr. Duan was a recipient of the National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award in 2013. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and a Senior Member of the Optical Society (OSA).
