"Picosecond and femtosecond laser systems for applications in nanotechnologies"

The lasers with extremely short pulses in the pico- and femtosecond range are very useful tools adapted for nanotechnologies, satisfying the demands of high precision and reproducibility. They are present in almost all stages of nanotechnologies from the production of nanostructures, to the characterisation, manipulation and application in different domains.

The main target of the project is to develop a laser facility including two ultrafast laser systems generating picosecond and femtosecond laser pulses, in order to provide high-performance photonic tools for the Romanian scientists involved in the field of micro- and nanotechnologies. Such laser systems delivering picosecond and femtosecond pulses are not available in our country today, the nanosecond lasers being the fastest pulse-lasers used in photonic micro and nanotehnologies. The goal is to significantly improve the performance and the capabilities of the national scientific activity in the nano-science field, one of the priorities of the European and international research movement. During the project development, experimental studies in the micro- and nanotechnologies area will be performed using the ultrafast laser pulses. Our intention is to offer a modern laser facility with national and regional impact accessible to anybody interested in laser based applications in nano-science.
