Talks (Lectures)

Watch Professor Trebino's colloquium talk, complete with narration (77MB). This ~50-minute talk is a nice introduction to the Trebino group's work.

Another fully narrated talk (48MB) covers more recent work on the measurement of the complete spatio-temporal electromagnetic field of an arbitrary pulse.

Professor Trebino is also happy to share his research and complete-course lectures with you.  You have permission to use them for your course.

Research Talks & Short Courses

Note:  These lectures were created using Microsoft Power Point 2010/365 for Windows and run best using it, but they look fine in Power Point 2011 for the Mac. (Just remove the added space after each apostrophe. Also, open each equation and then immediately close it, which reformats it for the Mac. The equations were generated using Math Type; if you're having trouble seeing or editing them, you might consider obtaining this program.)


If you're running Windows and don't have Power Point, just download Power Point Viewer, which is free from Microsoft.


You can also play them on an iPad or Android tablet, but the various Office apps (including Power Point itself!) won't deal correctly with the equations.  At least they can be run off-line, once downloaded.


Or, for a Mac, purchase a Windows-computer simulator, like Parallels.  Then install Windows and MS Office within Windows.  This allows you to run Macintosh and Windows simultaneously.  It's awesome--it offers the best of both Windows and Mac worlds, and, surprisingly, it works well and is actually trivial to do.  Everyone should do this.


As a last resort, note that the files reside on Microsoft OneDrive, so you can simply use the version of Power Point that's built into it, but it requires Internet access, and, oddly, the animations don't work very well.


In addition, the Optics lectures are also translated into Spanish, French, and Chinese.


Prof. Trebino continually updates and improves most of the English-version lectures.  So, if you plan to use them to teach a course, be sure to download the latest version just prior to doing so.


Finally, if you send any improvements, corrections, or additions to Prof. Trebino, he will incorporate them into the files.  And please let him know if you're using them, and share with him your experiences using them.  Thanks!
