Welcome to the Ultrafast Laser Laboratory - Uwe Morgner

The investigation of ultrafast processes in nature requires the preparation of tailored light pulses with durations much shorter than the inherent dynamics of the process under test. 
Our group is doing high level research on pulsed lasers and their applications in many different areas of science. Our expertise in laser physics spans from the world wide shortest pulses with single cycle durations via high repetition rate high energy sources to terawatt peak powers. 
Our laser application research addresses fundamental questions regarding light-matter interaction as well as micro machining or bio imaging. 

Success at the Excellence Initiative of the DFG

The large scale project „Hearing4all“ has been selected to be one of the promoted Clusters of Excellence by the Deutsche Forschungsgesellschaft DFG. Together with the University of Oldenburg, the Medizinische Hochschule Hannover (MHH) and the Leibniz Universität Hannover this project will be funded with about 40 million Euro over a period of five years.
As the name suggests “Hearing4all” has the main goal to enable hearing for all human beings, since e.g. more than 18 % of the German population is suffering from hearing loss requiring treatment. With an improvement of diagnostics, the scientists aim to essentially improve the quality of life of the concerned patients.
The ultrafast optics group at IQ is an integral part of “Hearing4all” contributing fundamental research on optical in-vivo diagnostics of the inner ear, employing novel ultrafast lasers for inner-ear nonlinear spectroscopy.
