Photon Science Research Laboratories
The Photon Science Division (PSD) consists of six laboratories working in Macromolecules and Bio-Imaging (LSB), Condensed Matter (LSC), Micro- and Nanotechnology (LMN), Femtochemistry (LSF), Advanced Photonics (LAP) and Non-linear Optic (LNO) respectively.
The laboratories Macromolecules and Bio-Imaging (LSB), Condensed Matter (LSC), Femtochemistry (LSF) and Advanced Photonics (LAP) are responsible for the beamlines of the Swiss Hard X-ray Free Electron Laser (SwissFEL) and the Swiss Light Source (SLS). They are actively pursuing research covering various aspects of photon science. In addition, PSD scientists are active in education of Master and PhD students, and by teaching at various universities.
The Laboratory for Micro- and Nanotechnology (LMN) is active in nanofabrication and basic research on properties of nanostructures on surfaces. The LMN develops new experimental methods and turns the knowledge into nanofabrication processes.
