Ultrafast Super-Resolution Microscopy

Traditionally ultrafast spectroscopy has been conducted on large ensembles. But the motion of photoexcitations at the nanoscale is crucial to much of the physics of many systems.

A recent breakthrough has allowed us combine for the first time the powerful techniques of ultrafast spectroscopy and super-resolution optical microscopy. We can now track the motion of excitons, charges, polaritons, plasmons and other quasi-particles with 10fs temporal-resolution and 10nm spatial-resolution. This unprecedented combination of temporal and spatial resolution opens a completely new window into nanoscale quantum phenomena in solid-state systems.
