This is a DURIP proposal to acquire an ultrafast laser system UFLS with associated instrumentation for measuring ultrafast dynamics of semiconductor nanomaterials in a wide range of wavelengths with high spatial resolution. The UFLS consists of two key components an ultrafast amplifier Spirit-1040-4 from Newport Corporation and an optical parametric amplifier Spirit-OPA. Acquisition of the proposed instrumentation has enabled many new methods of characterizations and greatly enhanced our overall capabilities for future programs in developing nanoscale lasers and plasmonic-enhanced devices such as ultrafast nanolasers and detectors. The expanded nanophotonic capabilities also enables research-related education by serving as a state of-the-art platform for the training of graduate and undergraduate students.
