Laboratoire Lasers, Plasmas et Procédés Photoniques, Marseille, France
The LP3 (Lasers Plasmas and Photonic Processing Insitute – UMR 7341 AMU-CNRS) develops basic research and applications in the field of laser-matter interaction and secondary radiation source development such as X-ray sources. The research activities are shared in five transversal research operations: 1) Laser, Optics and Matter, 2) Laser and Plasmas, 3) Laser and Nano-/Micro-Electronics, 4) Laser and Biophotonics and 5) Laser, Energy and Environment. The main applications are related to microelectronics (silicon and organic), photovoltaic, optical devices, medical and sensing.
LP3 offers access to:
- A large set of pulsed laser sources, from ns to 10 fs, and from UV to near IR (more than 14 laser sources including an unique 100 Hz – 10 TW Ti:Sa laser source).
- An ultra-fast Mo K Alpha X source delivering 1011 photons/sr/s at 100 Hz.
- A Laser Induced Damage Threshold facility with laser pulse duration down to 10 fs.
- In situ (pump and probe, high speed imaging, spectroscopy … ) diagnostics and ex-situ (SEM, AFM, confocal and optical microscopes, ellipsometer, SNOM-RAMAN …) characterization tools.
Laserlab-Europe offers unique research opportunities to scientists from all over Europe and to a limited extent also to scientists from outside Europe. Access is provided
• to world-class laser research facilities,
• to a large variety of inter-disciplinary research, including life sciences,
• free of charge, including travel and accommodation.
Access is provided on the basis of scientific excellence of the proposal, reviewed by an external and independent Selection Panel. Priority is given to new users. A typical access project to LP3 has a duration of 1 to 2 weeks. Applications for longer visits are highly exceptional.
Details about the submission procedure can be found here. Applicants are encouraged to contact any of the facilities directly to obtain additional information and assistance in preparing a proposal. Applications for access are possible anytime.
We particularly welcome young scientists and scientists who have never used lasers in their research before. Laserlab-Europe strives to promote gender equality in scientific research and specifically encourages applications from women.
