The focus of the Optical Sciences thrust is to understand and exploit the elegant interaction between light and matter. Our research portfolio encompasses the generation, transmission, manipulation, and detection of light and the development of optical materials with user defined characteristics.
- We emphasize innovative work in laser and optical materials development, nonlinear optics, spectroscopy, remote sensing, and photon-material interactions.
- In partnership with our DOE, government, and industrial partners, we provide innovative technical solutions to important national security missions and industrial needs.
- Our technological strength is rooted in decades of fundamental research into the underlying science supporting state of the art optical systems.
- We have the technical depth to work across the spectrum from the deep UV to the far IR and THz.
