In addition to having access to shared facitlities at EPFL, in particular characterization tools and clean room facilities, the Galatea Lab features state of the art laser facilities consisting of several femtosecond laser sources from a few tens of femtoseconds to several hundred femtoseconds. The laser beams are redirected towards various motorized positioning platforms that are used to investigate the interaction of the laser with the material.
