Single-shot Fourier Ptychography Microscope for Pulse-Beam Metrology
Project Goals and Description:
This project involves designing, constructing, and using a novel computational microscope to perform pulse-beam metrology. Ultrafast pulses of light are extremely complicated both mathematically and physically. A technique capable of investigating the inherent four-dimensional structure of ulrafast light pulses is currently missing from the field. This project is interesting because it will provide a tool capable of studying the spatiotemporal structure of ultrafast light pulse in various scenarios including: filamentation, other highly nonlinear light matter interactions such as white light generation, secondary radiation source generation, and material modification e.g., micromachining.
Grand Challenge: Engineer the tools of scientific discovery.
