The Lund Laser Centre (LLC) is an organization for interdisciplinary research and collaboration in the fields of optics, spectroscopy and lasers at the Lund University. At the LLC a broad range of activities are pursued within several different research divisions and groups at the engineering, sciences and medical faculties, and at the MAX IV Laboratory. Research is performed in basic and applied atomic, molecular and chemical physics, from fundamental atomic and molecular physics to medical diagnostics and treatment, from quantum information to plasma physic and materials science. Access is offered to most of its laboratories.
For research in the extreme ultraviolet and x-ray spectral ranges, the LLC offers access, in particular, to the following labs / beamlines:
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 has a duration of 2 to 4 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.
