T-LASER comprises the extension of a laser facility to a versatile wavelength-tunable pulsed and continuous-wave (CW) laser platform operating from the ultraviolet to the infrared range of the optical spectrum, for enabling a wide range of advanced spectroscopic techniques and laser-based applications – the key research capabilities of the ECM group. Thanks to a large fraction (78%) of co-funding, a laser platform will be built that is not only essential to all of ECM's ongoing research projects and its many collaborations, but actually establishes a world-wide unique laser facility. Moreover, this central laser platform will be complemented with a range of optical satellite setups that are already available (and already unique) and will be further developed. The versatility of the laser facility, both in pulse duration and wavelength tunability, will enable unprecedented optical experiments, such as widely continuously tunable resonance Raman scattering, and nonlinear optical scattering such as widely wavelength-tunable (second- and third-order) hyper-Rayleigh and hyper-Raman scattering. This will form a highly complementary set of unique techniques, making UAntwerp an extremely desirable partner for research groups active in the involved technologies, worldwide.
