Dynamics of a Light Pulse Interacting with Nanosized Objects
Unveiling the spatial and temporal dynamics of a light pulse interacting with nanosized objects opens new ground for understanding nanoscale phenomena. Here, researchers resolve the time-dependent behavior of a single germanium plasmonic antenna in the mid-infrared by measuring the complex optical field response in amplitude and phase with sub-optical-cycle precision, with the promise to extend the observation to a single quantum object.

The experimental setup for this research includes an Yb:KGW high-power laser system (PHAROS 10 W from Light Conversion) with a repetition rate of 50 kHz was used to guarantee large acquisition rates to reduce statistical noise.
Features of the PHAROS laser include:
- 190 fs – 20 ps tunable pulse duration
- 2 mJ maximum pulse energy
- 20 W maximum output power
- Single-shot – 1 MHz repetition rate
- Pulse picker for pulse-on-demand mode
- Industrial-grade design
- Optional automated harmonic generator
- Optional CEP stabilization
- Optional repetition rate locking to an external source
