The main expertise of the Laboratory is in the field of ultrafast carrier dynamics in semiconductors and semiconductor devices; its staff has developed several experimental techniques based on the use of femtosecond pulsed lasers. Researchers of the Laboratory have investigated THz pulse emission from the surfaces of various semiconductors excited by femtosecond laser pulses, developed efficient optoelectronic emitters and detectors of such pulses. They are also active in search for new fields of application of the THz spectroscopy application.
