We’ve come up with a way to cavity-enhance 2D signals using the natural phase cycling of higher-order cavity modes: https://arxiv.org/abs/1608.08102
Xinlong Li received the runner up poster prize for the Short Wavelength Sources and Attosecond/High Field Physics technical group at the Ultrafast Phenomena 2016 conference. Congratulations Xinlong!
We have three new group members joining us this Summer, Zihan Zhang, Myles Silfies, and Fanqiong Yuan. Welcome!

We have been awarded an early career grant from the Department of Energy, Basic Energy Sciences. A writeup by the University appears here: http://sb.cc.stonybrook.edu/news/general/2016-05-04-thomas-allison.php
Our first paper has now been published, and can be found here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1364/OPTICA.3.000311
Our first group member, Melanie Reber, has accepted an assistant professor position at University of Georgia in Athens, GA. There, she will start her own research group pursuing ultrafast optical spectroscopy of gas-phase molecular systems. Congratulations to Melanie!
After a nearly three year period building unique instrumentation, our first paper is submitted. The paper is available on the arXiv pre-print server here:
We have recently added an enhancement cavity to the pump beam of our cavity-enhanced spectroscopy experiment, allowing us to excite the molecules about 100x more and realizing the full potential of CETAS.
