I am leading the Ultrafast Photoncis research group. Our group carries out experimental, numerical, and theoretical research on ultrafast photonics and applications including:
- Ultrafast light sources with tailored properties and supercontinuum generation
- Fiber-optics and nonlinear instabilities
- Ultrafast laser dynamics
- Ultrafast characterization techniques
We also combine artifical intelligence with fibre-optics technology to design smart laser sources and for improved ultrafast light diagnostics. We apply our research for better understanding of light-matter interactions and nonlinear science as well as to the development of novel sensing and imaging approaches and in parrticular in the mid-infrared. Our group is always happy to collaborate. Do not hesitate to contact us!
I am also the Director of the Flagship for Photonics Research and Innovation (PREIN) awarded in 2019 by the Academy of Finland. The Flagship is a joint national program for Photonics multi-disciplinary science and technology development, including Tampere University, Aalto University, Un iversity of Eastern Finland and VTT and involving more than 50 professors and 400 researchers.
