On behalf of the entire
group, I would like to welcome you to the official webpage of the
Multifunctional Materials Spectroscopy Laboratory based in the Physics
Department at Boston University. We use time-resolved optical
spectroscopy spanning from the far-infrared through the visible to
characterize the fundamental and technologically relevant properties of
a host of interesting materials. In some cases we design, fabricate,
and characterize our own artificial materials, but we also collaborate
with colleagues from all over the world to characterize interesting
artificial and quantum-based materials that they create. The beauty of
optical spectroscopy, be it time-resolved or time-integrated, is its
breadth of applicability to meaningfully study virtually any material
you can imagine. And, with a very collaborative and multidisciplinary
mindset, that is exactly what we do. Please look around and
if you have questions feel free to contact any of us to learn more.
