Place for the resources we use in our experimental and theoretical work


Our pump-probe guide for experimentalists - tricks we use (in Russian)

1) Сказка об осцилляторе и плотности накачки, или бесценный опыт (how to focus and detect laser pulses depending on the laser type - oscillator or amplifier)

2) Метод пристального взгляда (how to visualize the sample and pump-probe spots)

3) Лазер и модулятор. Как выбрать и чтоб работало (Which type of modulator better to use with oscillator/amplifier)

4) Ослабленный свет и безопасные очки (How to attenuate laser pulses and not to destroy an optic element)

5) Хитрости акустического пампа-проба (Tricks with an acoustic pump)
