The Laser Facility Laboratory provides the necessary technology and knowledge to apply ultrashort (femtosecond) and ultraintense laser pulses in order to resolve different scientific and technological problems.
Over recent years, the Laser Service has provided technical support for different research projects:
- Time-of-flight mass spectrometry resolved in time. This appliance is used to study any type of photophysical processes, with femtosecond resolution, of samples in supersonic molecular beams.
- Upconversion fluorescence system, which enables previous studies to be extended to condensed phase samples.
- Quantum dot spectroscopy.
- Optical characterisation techniques of liquid crystals by means of second harmonic generation with ultrashort IR pulses.
- Micro-machining line.
In addition to the available equipment and the described experiment techniques, the Laser Facility provides technical support for instrumentation development and a general advisory service on ultra-short pulse lasers and their applications.
