Welcome to the Cooke THz Lab.
My lab is focused on the development and use of ultrafast spectroscopic tools to probe and control material properties relevant to both fundamental condensed matter physics and applications related to energy harvesting.
If you are interested in learning more or joining the group, please contact me!
The Grütter group, in collaboration with us, show that atomic force microscopy can time-resolve two-pulse nonlinear optical forces on the nanoscale with sub-cycle resolution is published in Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. LINK TO PAPER
