Nano and femtosecond laser applications - of great strategic and fundamental interest - can be deemed to form part of diverse areas of science and technology. Below we cite just a few of them.
- REMPI spectroscopy (resonant enhanced multiphoton ionization).
- ZEKE spectroscopy (zero electron kinetic energy).
- Laser-induced fluorescence.
- Double-resonance spectroscopy (hole burning, etc.).
- Laser ablation.
- Proteomics and metabolomics (MALDI technique).
- Temporary resolution of photophysical, photochemical and ultrafast photobiological processes (10-15 -10-12 sec), using all types of pumping-probe technique (fluorescence up conversion, transient ionization, ion imaging, etc.).
- Coherent control of the chemical reaction.
- Photonics, in general.
- Non-linear optics (high-order harmonic and supercontinuous generation, parametric generation, etc.).
- Plasma physics.
- Waveguide processing for optical communication.
- Metal, alloy and oxide ablation, feather characterization.
- PLD (physical laser deposition).
- MEMS manufacture.
- Development of new optical devices for storing information.
- Nanostructuring of surfaces.
