Time-resolved terahertz and optical spectroscopy facility (ARC LIEF Project administered by the University of New South Wales) (2016–2017)

The dynamics of electrons and nuclei following the absorption of light involves processes which occur on timescales from femtoseconds to microseconds. The ability to probe these dynamics is of great importance for understanding the underlying photophysics and photochemistry of a range of technologies including solar photovoltaics and solar photocatalysis. The proposed time-resolved terahertz and optical spectroscopy facility will enable Australian researchers to monitor photogenerated excitons and charge carriers on time-scales from femtoseconds up to microseconds. This will provide a powerful capability to deeply understand the photophysical processes occurring in advanced photovoltaic and photocatalysis materials and devices.
