The lab of Chunlei Guo, professor of optics, continues to produce exciting discoveries
The lab of Chunlei Guo, professor of optics, continues to produce exciting discoveries. In a paper published recently in Nature Light: Science & Applications, Chunlei and Billy Lam, a PhD student in his lab, describe a wedged reversal shearing interferometer that provides a much simpler way to measure beams of light— even powerful, superfast pulsed laser beams that require very complicated devices to characterize their properties.
The new device will give scientists an unprecedented ability to fine tune even the quickest pulses of light for a host of applications, and it could render traditional instruments for measuring light beams obsolete.
