Institute for Ultrafast Spectroscopy
and Lasers (IUSL)
The Institute for Ultrafast Spectroscopy and Lasers is a research unit that also houses the New York State Center for Ultrafast Photonic Materials and Applications. This interdisciplinary Institute is housed in the Science Division but one component of the Institute, the Photonics Application Laboratory, is housed within the GSOE. Research is in the areas of ultrafast phenomena, new laser sources, nonlinear optics, imaging, optical communication, optical storage, optical remote sensing and microstructures. A large number of engineering undergraduates and graduate students are involved in Institute research projects. The Institute has an independent research budget from the College.
