Set up by Prof. A. S. Vengurlekar, laboratory specialized in ultrafast spectroscopy of semiconductors. Earlier emphasis was on the carrier dynamics in semiconductor nanostructures studied using techniques like Time resolved photoluminescence (Upconversion), Nonlinear photoluminescence, Degenerate four wave mixing, differential reflectance.
Recent interest of the laboratory is in Plasmonics, Photonic crystals, THz spectroscopy, Optical properties of interfaces.
Supported by department cleanroom facility and finite difference time domain simulators we design, fabricate and characterize dielectric and metal-dielectric nanostructures.
Optical Properties of interfaces : Optical and nonlinear optical studies of interfaces.
Plasmonics : Novel plasmonic structures to study plasmon dynamics, coupled plasmons, studying plasmon enhanced optical, magneto-optical and nonlinear optical properties of matter.
Photonic Crystals : Photonic crystal structures with Quantum dots as defects.
THz spectroscopy : Generation and detection of THz and THz spectroscopy of materials.
