Short-pulse Lasers Applications and Materials (SLAM)

by Webmaster - published on

This activity concerns the study of laser – matter interaction with different types of materials and different types of laser sources.

We distinguish three principal research axes :

Laser-material interaction

  • Understanding material modification and ablation in the pico and femtosecond regime
  • Understanding material modification at the surface and in the volume in the pico and femtosecond regime by linear and non-linear microscopies, imaging and correlative spectroscopy
  • Investigating optical characteristics & applications of photonics structures

Laser multi-material processing

  • 3D laser printing of devices: Photonics Plasmonics, in dielectric bulk materials or fibers
  • Advanced micromachining : drilling, engraving, texturing, cutting and welding
  • Hybrid processing: merging laser processing with other techniques

Laser induced plasma

  • Physics and chemistry of plasma
  • LIBS – Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy
  • Chimiometry and data fusion
