How ultrafast lasers developed in Michelle Sander’s lab are speeding up biological research

Michelle Sander and her lab group at Boston University are seeking out new ways to build ultrafast lasers – lasers that emit such short-lasting pulses of light that their duration is difficult to fathom.
“I’m particularly interested in developing lasers on the femtosecond scale – a fraction of a second so small that its ratio is the same as one second to 32 million years,” Sander says.
