Ultrafast interrogation of quantum materials
Abstract Developments in non-linear ultrafast spectroscopy allow us to probe many body quantum dynamics in the solid state, yielding novel insights into quantum materials. I highlight key advances in this emerging field, including the application of non-linear spectroscopic techniques to resolve longstanding open problems in silicon, and proposals to use such techniques for diagnosis and characterization of fractionalized excitations in quantum spin liquids and beyond.
