Experimental research interests

In the experimental field, our goal is to develop new techniques and light sources for laser spectroscopy. We are also interested in applying these techniques and sources for medical studies. A specific point of interest is the analysis of exhaled human breath. This is a growing field of medical diagnostics and we hope to help introduce laser spectroscopic methods to this community.
