STROBE Labs Participating in the SURS Program

University of California, Los Angeles

The Kogar lab uses intense light pulses to discover, study and control various states of matter including charge density waves, superconductors and other exotic phases. At a high level, the lab seeks to answer the following questions pertaining to this topic: (1) What kinds of phases of matter exist away from thermal equilibrium? (2) Can the different degrees of freedom of light, i.e. the polarization, wavelength, orbital angular momentum, etc., be used to control various phases? (3) Can light be used to create and manipulate topological defects in ordered phases? To answer these questions, the group uses ultrafast electron diffraction and time-resolved second harmonic generation.

The Kogar lab is also working on developing spectroscopic tools to quantitatively measure the Coulomb energy change across phase transitions in order to place various constraints on how solids save energy. This is particularly pertinent in the field of unconventional superconductivity, where there is still much debate about where the energy is saved as a material undergoes a change from its “normal” to superconducting phase. As part of the ultrafast electron diffraction beamline, the lab is designing transmission electron energy loss spectroscopy instrumentation to perform such experiments.

Research in the Miao lab lies at the interface of physics, nanoscience, and biology. Our lab has played a major role in pioneering a three-dimensional imaging approach based upon the principle of using coherent diffraction in combination with a method of direct phase recovery called oversampling. Our lab aims to tackle major scientific challenges by improving imaging technology and probing physical properties of materials at the single-atom level using optical lasers, coherent X-rays, and electrons.

Suggested Skills: Some knowledge of Python and/or Matlab is preferred.

The Musumeci lab combines ultrafast laser technology and electron beam physics to develop compact accelerators to provide high quality, ultra-short particle beams. Our goal is to develop the first time-resolved electron microscope capable of acquiring single shot images with picosecond temporal resolution and nanometer spatial resolution.

Suggested Skills: Upper Division E&M and/or Classical Mechanics preferred. The project will be mostly theory/computation, as it will be related to the design of electron optics for a variable magnification microscope, but there could be practical aspects of it (for example measuring magnets). Will mostly use commercial software that there is prior knowledge of programming needed. Some knowledge of Matlab to interpret and postprocess data might be useful.

Our research group designs and synthesizes new atomically thin, precisely tailored two-dimensional (2D) materials in which the collective behavior of electrons can be studied and exquisitely controlled. We leverage these materials to uncover the principles that underlie efficient manipulation of electron transport within solids—the basis for novel ultralow-power electronic devices—and across solid–liquid interfaces—enabling the next-generation of fuel cells and electrolyzers for renewable energy conversion and storage. To achieve our goals, we leverage solid-state and solution-phase methodologies, as well as chemical and electrochemical deposition techniques for materials synthesis. We use state-of-the-art micromanipulation and nanofabrication tools for the preparation of mesoscopic structures, and employ a range of optical spectroscopy, scanning-electrochemical, electron microscopy, and low-temperature quantum magnetotransport probes to measure the (electro)chemical and physical properties at individual devices.

Currently open research projects include mechanism-guided electrocatalyst discovery for fuel-forming and fuel-consuming reactions in electrolyzers and fuel cells; ion insertion and transport reactions of two-dimensional heterointerfaces for energy storage and to create novel quantum materials; and the electro-chemical control of light–matter interactions and topological phases in 2D semiconductors and semimetals.

The Falcone group’s work takes place at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the Advanced Light Source (ALS) synchrotron facility. The group develops novel methods of high-resolution, chemically resolved, ultrafast, three-dimensional imaging at the nanoscale, using x-rays, to better understand the physics and chemistry of functional materials under more conventional conditions. They also work on understanding the behavior of solids and plasmas that are under extreme conditions of pressure and temperature. We are studying how these materials respond to high stress (up to a billion atmospheres of pressure, or 1 GigaBar) and high temperatures (several million degrees, or hundreds of eV), using techniques that include imaging and spectroscopy.

Suggested Skills: any experience with programming (Python, matlab or C/C++), image manipulation or low power lasers.

Research in the Ginsberg lab pushes the limits of spatially resolved spectroscopy and time resolved microscopy in multiple modalities. These are tailored to answer fundamental and challenging questions that span chemistry, physics, and biology, many of which pertain to interrogating dynamic nanoscale processes in energy-related materials that are formed through deposition from the solution-phase. Although this approach to material formation is facile and energy efficient, it often results in heterogeneous, kinetically trapped structures far from equilibrium. One of our main goals is therefore to elucidate how these materials’ physical structure, including the nature of their heterogeneities and defects, determines their emergent optoelectronic properties. To do so, we conceive and develop multiple new forms of dynamic optical microscopies with sub-diffraction resolution, each tailored to a particular class of materials and their associated femtosecond-to-minutes dynamics. For resolving the dynamics of energy flow, we primarily employ ultrafast optical microscopies; to resolve dynamic material structures we perform in situ X-ray scattering and extend the applicability cathodoluminescence microscopy to soft materials otherwise too delicate to withstand electron beam illumination.

The Computational Imaging Lab at UC Berkeley develops methods for designing imaging systems and algorithms jointly in terms of hardware and software. This new generation of cameras integrates computers as a part of the imaging system, whereby the optical setup and post‐processing algorithms are designed simultaneously. For example, one can digitally refocus images, enhance resolution or recover 3D. We focus on microscopy, multi-dimensional imaging and inverse problems that incorporate wave-optical effects (e.g. phase, diffraction, coherence) with optical, X-ray or electron microscopes.

Our research is inherently interdisciplinary, drawing from expertise in optical physics, signal processing and computer science, with broad applications in bioimaging, defense, physical science and industrial inspection. We work with optical microscopes, consumer cameras and X-ray imaging systems, and we use algorithms of nonlinear non-convex optimization, compressed sensing and machine learning.

The Jimenez group is actively engaged at the interface of quantum optics with physical chemistry. In this research, we manipulate the properties of light at the single photon or few photon level. By employing “quantum engineered” light for spectroscopy, we aim to harness the remarkable quantum mechanical properties such as entanglement, superposition, and coherence in order to increase the sensitivity and information content of spectroscopy. We are particularly interested in “real world” measurements on complex molecular and nano-materials systems in room temperature liquids, thin films, or crystals.

Our group is particularly interested in whether fluorescent proteins (FPs) can be engineered to have photophysical properties, such as brightness, that are superior to those of conventional organic fluorophores, and if so, what are the structural and dynamical features of FPs that enable these properties? We use a combination of random and targeted mutagenesis to create and assess new red/far-red FPs with improved spectral and cellular properties. We have designed and operated several novel microfluidic systems for screening these large libraries of mutants. For example, microdroplets containing 1–3 bacterial cells, each expressing a unique protein variant, can be individually excited by a chosen laser wavelength, their emission assessed via a customized detection system, and the droplets/cells of interest collected through a gated channel. Thus, we can enhance for a cell population carrying FPs with particular qualities.
Suggested Skills: Motivation to succeed.

Research in the KM group focuses on ultrafast laser and x-ray science and using novel tabletop light sources for imaging and spectroscopy experiments spanning physics, nano and materials science and engineering. The X-ray sources we currently use in medicine, security screening, and science are in essence the same X-ray light bulb source that Röntgen used in 1895. In the same way that visible lasers can concentrate light energy far better than a light bulb, a directed beam of X-rays has many useful applications in science and technology. To achieve this and make a practical, tabletop-scale, X-ray laser source, we transform a beam of light from a visible femtosecond laser into a beam of directed X-rays. This makes it possible to build near-perfect X-ray microscopes that can capture how materials function.

Dr. Lamb’s research focuses on following the flow of energy through photocatalytic systems—particularly visible-light absorbing organic photoredox catalysts–which are critical to the kinds of sustainable and green chemistries that could greatly offset energetic expenditure in the bulk chemical industry (1/9th of our country’s energetic expenditure). However, this technology is in its infancy and optimizing the methodology is necessary to achieve efficient processes. Student researchers will investigate both the photophysical properties of these catalysts as well as the photochemical reactions that they conduct with model substrates relevant to the production of polymeric materials. Much of the research will include spectroscopic and electrochemical measurements and analysis.

The work done in the Ultrafast Laser Plasma Interactions lab focuses on generating compact radiation sources in high intensity laser matter interactions. Laser pulses with durations of femtoseconds can achieve extreme intensities which can instantly ionize matter into plasma and drive electrons relativistic in a single optical cycle. This highly complex and nonlinear regime is capable of generating particle beams of electrons and light ions, as well as coherent x-ray sources. We study these interactions both through experiments in vacuum chambers as well as numerically with high performance computing. SURS scholars have performed projects on Laser Wakefield acceleration, high harmonic generation, laser mode shaping, and coherent diffractive imaging.
