Non-equilibrium emergence in optically modulated solids

The control of non-equilibrium phenomena in complex solids is an important research frontier, encompassing new and highly surprising emergent phenomena. Recent experiments have shown that optical modulation of the crystal lattice can be used to induce insulator-metal transitions, affect the competition between more than one electronic phase, induce superconducting like properties at high base temperatures or even drive magnetic order with light. In this talk I will discuss some perspectives in this area, and I will also discuss some new technologies aimed at controlling and probing solids at femtosecond time resolution.
