Abstract:

This research included the development of novel laser techniques which allow fundamental studies of atoms, molecules and solids, especially relaxation phenomena in the time domain. The stark and laser frequency switching techniques were examples which bring the coherence methods of pulsed NMR spin transients to the optical region. Decay time measurements on a millisecond to a picosecond timescale appeared feasible. Author
