Abstract

Discussed as peculiar optical response observed in quasi-one-dimensional (1D) cuprates, Sr2CuO3 and Sr-CuO2. Femtosecond pump-probe transmission spectra in the 1D cuprates are measured at 10-300 K. To change the pump and probe energies independently, two optical parametric oscillators, which are pumped with a regenerative amplifier and generate light pulses with approx. 200 fs with in the region of 0.3-20 μm.
