Warwick Centre for Ultrafast Spectroscopy

About WCUS

The Warwick Centre for Ultrafast Spectroscopy, funded by the EPSRC and the University of Warwick, and designed and constructed in collaboration with Newport Spectra Physics, is a state-of-the-art femtosecond laser facility comprising four beamlines with experiments ranging from the ultraviolet to the terahertz regime, and a range of complementary spectroscopic methods. This facility acts as a focus for collaboration both within the university and without, with external users being able to book time on any of the experiments.

Facility Access

WCUS boasts a wide range of available techniques, with a focus towards ease of access, making this facility unique in the UK when compared to larger facilities of this kind. We have an informal 'proof-of-concept' application process, to allow us to properly assess your needs before making longer term bookings, which makes WCUS an exciting platform for multidisciplinary studies and cutting edge research. Just email our Facility Manager if you want to know more. Please note before booking, projects longer than one week will go to our advisory board before time is alloted.
