Welcome to the Nonlinear Optics Laboratory at the
University of Dayton. The research goals of this lab are the development
and application of new nonlinear optical sources. In particular, we are
investigating methods of producing infrared light for use in applied spectroscopy.
This involves three research areas, designing and fabricating nonlinear
optical materials, building nonlinear optical frequency conversion devices,
and applying these devices to spectroscopic measurements. Research
is proceeding in all three of these areas. More detailed information
is given in the following links.
