Our research interests are concerned with the fundamental understanding of ultrafast processes in complex systems, with a particular focus on surface and interface dynamics induced by light. Goal is to understand these systems on a molecular level and their dynamics on femtosecond timescales. Our tools to visualize dynamic processes in these complex systems are innovative and unique techniques from the field of ultrafast spectroscopy.
