The department of Terahertz and Laser Spectroscopy (TLS) has a long track record in instrumentation development for and application of laser-based spectroscopic techniques ranging from the UV to the deep THz spectral range. It is furthermore involved in the operations and science of instruments such as the Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) The department is also contributing to the development of space instruments such as the Raman spectrometer for the Martian Moons eXploration (MMX) space probe (RAX) and is studying novel quantum materials with potential applications in space instruments. The department thereby bridges the gap between state of the art laboratory spectroscopy concepts and operational space instruments. It ensures a rapid and efficient transfer and implementation of advances in novel photonic technologies, quantum technologies and quantum materials into space research. The work in the department is carried out in three groups (Time-Domain Spectroscopy, Heterodyne Spectroscopy and Physical Foundations of IT Security).
