Controlling Quantum Materials with Light

I will discuss how coherent electromagnetic radiation at infrared and TeraHertz frequencies can be used to drive collective excitations in solids nonlinearly. The driven cooperative response can yield new types functional control. I will for example discuss experiments in which phonons are manipulated, amplified and used to drive electronic coherences in solids. I will also discuss the physics of superconducting plasmons in layered superconductors and how these reveal new nonlinear THz phenomena.
