TRR 142 - Nonlinear strong-field dynamics of atomically thin transition metal dichalcogenides (A10)

Monolayers of Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDCs) exhibit very high exciton binding energies of several hundred meV and extraordinarily strong optical nonlinearities. Stacking several monolayers allows one to tailor these properties by the choice of materials and their relative orientation. We will explore and manipulate such samples by using ...

Semiconductor quantum wells excited by non-classical states of light: Interplay between photonic quantum correlations and many-body interactions in solid state systems

Compared to atomic systems, the theoretical description of the optical properties of bulk semiconductors and nanostructures is significantly more complex but also much richer and over a wide range designable by the choice of the nanostructure geometry and the material composition, e.g., in quantum wells. Whereas in atoms the electronic states are ...

TRR 142 - Widely non-defenerate stimulated two-photon emission in semiconductors (A07)

Two-photon emission is a process in which optical transitions occur through the simultaneous emission of two photons. Here, we will focus on experimental and theoretical studies of widely non-degenerate two-photon emission stimulated by femtosecond pulses. Similar to nonlinear optical absorptions, such processes are expected to be massively ...

TRR 142 - Integrierte messungsinduzierte Nichtlinearitäten mit integrierten supraleitenden Detektoren (C06)

This project will investigate the theoretical potential and experimental feasibility of integrating superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) on lithium niobate waveguides in order to implement a measurement-induced nonlinearity. Such nonlinearities arise from probabilistic mea-surement events and as such, can be implemented at very ...

The anomalous velocity in its ultrafast regime

Carriers in solids have fundamentally different properties than in free-space. One of the most intriguing differences is the anomalous velocity constituting carriers moving perpendicular to an electrical bias. This velocity is at the origin of fascinating physical phenomena such as the spin Hall and anomalous Hall effect and has direct impact on ...
