Optical pump, terahertz probe spectrometer

The optical pump, terahertz probe spectrometer is up and running! Thanks to Maurizio and Mick for their hard work on the setup for this beamline and for testing it. Currently we can pump between 2.5um and 9um wavelengths, and shorter wavelengths will be available soon. Samples can be measured in vacuum with the option for cryogenic temperatures also to be implemented soon. The conductivity dynamics can be probed up to 3ns after photoexcitation.
