High temporal resolution and the ability to access non-linear optical responses is enabled by the use of femtosecond lasers. These have allowed spectroscopists to observe and rationalize photophysical processes in a variety of complex materials. Recent advances in laser technologies have also pushed these ultrafast probes into a wider energy range, from X-rays to THz and even ultrafast electron probes have emerged. These lead to groundbreaking and relevant discoveries in a broad variety of materials such as biological matter, energy materials and quantum materials. Keeping in mind the steady metamorphosis of these rather niche spectroscopic tools into standard material probes, this symposium takes stock of recent developments in ultrafast spectroscopic techniques in addressing contemporary issues in emerging materials. This provides an ideal platform for both ultrafast spectroscopists and material scientists to explore ways to converge established and emerging techniques for material characterization and development.
