Femtosecond 2-photon spectroscopy: are two better than one?
Professor Aleks Rebane
Physics Department, Montana State University
Bozeman, MT USA
Two-photon absorption is a nonlinear-optical process, where two photons are absorbed Simultaneously, and it is usually facilitated by high peak photon flux provided by femtosecond lasers. This colloquium will present an overview of different aspects of two-photon spectroscopy in my group over the last 15 years, which include improved measurement techniques, photodynamic therapy of cancer, all-optical determination of molecular electric fields as well as some other applications.
