Nonlinear optics

Fiber lasers

Laser spectroscopy

Precision measurement

Daniel Maser’s postdoctoral research focused on performing precision measurements on heavy atoms, such as indium and lead, as tests of fundamental physics by comparing experimental results to wavefunction calculations.

His doctoral dissertation involved modeling and developing broadband mid-infrared laser sources based on fiber lasers used for telecommunications, and using them to measure trace gas concentrations in the atmosphere.

Maser is a member of the Optical Society of America and American Physical Society. He joined Connecticut College in 2019 and teaches PHY 107 and PHY 108.
