LASER SOURCES

  • Excimer lasers (F2 157 nm, ArF 193 nm, KrF 248 nm, XeCl 308 nm)
  • Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers emitting at the fundamental wavelength (1064 nm) and up to the 5th harmonic (213 nm) with pulses of nanosecond duration and repetition rate of up to 10 Hz
  • Narrow bandwidth tunable dye lasers (from blue to red) pumped with the 3rd harmonic of a Nd:YAG laser
  • CW CO2 tunable laser (9-11 μm) up to 20 W
  • Systems for generation of tunable UV and vacuum UV coherent radiation 

 

CHAMBERS

  • Pulsed laser ablation and deposition chambers
  • Time-of-flight mass spectrometer coupled to an ablation chamber with continuous or pulsed ion extractor and MCP detector

 

EQUIPMENT FOR DISPERSION AND DETECTION OF LIGHT

  • Equipment for light spectral selection and detection: monochromators, photomultipliers and photodiodes
  • Equipment for spectral analysis of laser induced plasma (laser induced breakdown spectroscopy, LIBS) coupled to an Intensified Charge Coupled Device camera (ICCD) with temporal and spectral resolution of 2 ns and 0.2 nm respectively
