Seminar room B (2.6.)
Coherent optical control and nonlinear probing of strongly correlated materials
Dr. Roman Mankowsky | Paul Scherrer Institutetalks about
In this lecture, I will first review nonlinear phononics and discuss its role in the phenomenon of light-induced superconductivity [5, 6, 7]. I will then present recent studies, in which resonant lattice excitation was used to control the polarization of ferroelectric materials on femtosecond timescales . These studies are a first step toward ultrafast reversible switching. In the last part of the lecture, I will focus on highly nonlinear lattice dynamics and the applications of X-ray Free Electron Lasers in future research projects.
