Advanced Spectroscopy

Modern science and technology would be inconceivable without advanced spectroscopic methods which can probe sample composition and properties over length-scales from nanometric to astronomic.

Spectroscopy also plays a crucial role in helping to uncover and characterize novel quantum and nonlinear phenomena in many fields ranging from molecular photophysics to atmospheric chemistry. At KIT we develop methods and apply ultrafast, remote sensing and highly spatially resolved spectroscopy. Such advanced spectroscopic techniques are essential for expanding research horizons, e.g., in materials science and nanotechnology. Often a novel spectroscopic technique is the method of choice for new sensor systems which can in turn be part of a bigger optical system (see Research Area IV). In part, such advances are based on established methods and available instrumentation platforms. However, there are presently at least four areas of advanced spectroscopy in which further instrument/method development is required and will translate directly into progress in ‘spectroscopy dependent’ research fields: (i) transient measurements, e.g., of energy flow in molecules, (ii) optical probes of matter under extreme physical conditions, e.g., in low-density ion clouds, (iii) single nanostructure/molecule studies using spatially and often also temporally resolved approaches and (iv) remote spectroscopic sensing, e.g., in the context of climate science.
