The 334th forum: Dynamical Control of Superconductivity with Light

Date: 2018-06-14
Time: 10:00
Venue: 中科院物理研究所M楼236报告厅
Speaker: Wanzheng Hu Assistant Professor

Boston University

Wanzheng Hu is an assistant professor in Boston University, Department of Physics. She got her PhD from Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2010. From 2010-2017, she worked at Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg, Germany. In 2017, she was awarded a €1.79-million European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant.

Using ultra-short laser pulses to drive quantum materials out of equilibrium is an emergent technique for dynamical materials control. Selectively driving low-energy excitations using femtosecond laser pulses can achieve novel quantum phases inaccessible at equilibrium.
    Combining dynamical light control with ultra-broadband transient optical spectroscopy, we are able to directly probe the dynamics of lattice vibrations and electronic excitations over the whole far-infrared region, revealing the physics behind the transient quantum phases. In this talk, I will present our recent work on light-induced transient superconductivity in bilayer and trilayer cuprates.
