SINGULAR LASER FACILITY LABORATORY OF THE UPV/EHU

Applications

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.

Spectroscopy:

  • 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.
  • Others.

Physics:

  • Photonics, in general.
  • Non-linear optics (high-order harmonic and supercontinuous generation, parametric generation, etc.).
  • Plasma physics.
  • Others.

Material technology:

  • 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.
  • Others.

Industrial applications:

  • Micromachining.
  • Nanostructuring of surfaces.
  • Others.
