The PULSE Institute (PULSE) is an independent laboratory of Stanford University,[1] founded in 2005 for the purpose of advancing research in ultrafast science, with particular emphasis on research using the Linac Coherent Light Source at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.[2][3] Recent research programs include Terahertz radiation (sometimes called T-rays) ultrafast studies[4] and attosecond pulse studies.[5] It is housed in the Central Laboratory on the grounds of SLAC, and also utilizes some laboratory space on the main Stanford campus nearby. Philip H. Bucksbaum is the director,[6] and David A. Reis is the deputy director of PULSE.
