We study various physical processes and phenomena that occur at terahertz (THz) frequencies. Examples are low-energy excitations (1THz = 4.1 meV) such as lattice vibrations of solids (phonons), spin waves (magnons) as well as quasifree electrons. THz electromagnetic pulses are our most important tool to probe and even control such resonances.

Our work also focuses on the efficient generation of THz radiation by means of femtosecond laser pulses and its manipulation in photonic structures such as waveguides and antennas.
