Abstract – I will discuss how irradiation of certain quantum materials with coherent electromagnetic radiation at Tera-Hertz and mid-infrared frequencies can induce transient high temperature states that have striking similarities with equilibrium superconductors. These phases are observed at base temperatures as high as room temperature, underscoring the ability to impress coherence with light. This talk will also cover our search for new experimental methods that enable the characterization of these transient phases, to measure optical, structural, electrical and magnetic properties at very fast speeds.
