Mid-IR frequencies, anyone?

Cropped PicWelcome to PhD student, Noah Flemens, who will eventually be serving up mid-IR frequencies — in the form of single-cycle pulses with engineerable phase and amplitude profiles — on demand, by startingĀ a project on adiabatic frequency conversion of ultrashort pulses. His work will continue the development of intense, uber-broadband, mid-IR light that we began at MIT (see Suchowski, et al., Opt. Express), by pushing to higher energies and deeper IR frequencies, and by understanding the intricacies of pulse propagation in adiabatic frequency conversion.
