Exploring Extreme Light Sources In Unconventional Scenarios

Thz & mid-ir sources

Cavity-enhanced THz molecular spectroscopy

We have realized and characterized two different designs for resonant THz cavities, based on wire-grid polarizers as input/output couplers, and injected by a continuous-wave quantum cascade laser (QCL… Read more

Frequency Comb Generation in Quadratic Media

Originally conceived for frequency metrology, optical frequency combs of equally spaced frequency lines nowadays are routinely used in a wide range of scientific and technological applications. Ultraf… Read more

INtegration of cost-effective Solutions for Imaging, Detection, and Digitisation of hidden Elements in paintings (INSIDDE)

Because cultural heritage is one of the most valuable assets of our continent, European institutions are strongly committed with its conservation and protection, but also with its worldwide diffusion … Read more

Integrated Platform for the European Research Infrastructure ON Cultural Heritage (IPERION CH)

IPERION CH at a glance. The IPERION CH consortium is determined to take up the challenge outlined in the Horizon 2020 – Work Programme 2014-2015 for European research infrastructures, which calls fo… Read more

Mid Infrared Optical Parametric Oscillator

Continuous wave optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) are coherent sources of radiation having unique features, useful for a wide range of applications in high-resolution spectroscopy, frequency metro… Read more

Optical frequency comb generation in the mid IR

We have experimentally demonstrated the metrological and spectroscopic performances of a mid-IR comb generated by a nonlinear down-conversion process from a Ti:sapphire-based near-IR comb. A quantum c… Read more

Synthesis of terahertz frequencies by optical frequency mixing

In the context of THz spectroscopy, investigation of narrow-line radiation-matter resonances requires tunable monochromatic radiation. A key feature, highly desirable for a variety of experiments, is … Read more

Terahertz imaging of biological samples

The growing need for an accurate, objective and fast diagnosis has resulted in a growing use of digital imaging in routine diagnostics. However, in most cases is still used the standard staining with … Read more
