Warwick Centre for Ultrafast Spectroscopy

About WCUS

The Warwick Centre for Ultrafast Spectroscopy is a state-of-the-art femtosecond laser facility comprising four beamlines with experiments ranging from the ultraviolet to the terahertz regime. This facility, a joint project between the physics and chemistry departments, will act as a focus for collaboration both within the university and without, with external users being able to book time on any of the experiments. The wide range of techniques available for use make this facility unique in the UK, and an exciting platform for multidisciplinary studies. Use the buttons to the right to explore the facility, view the major objectives of WCUS, or book time on a beamline. Please note before booking, projects longer than one week will go to our advisory board before time is alloted.
