About KTH Laser Lab

KTH Laser Lab is a Research Infrastructure established at the Department Applied Physics, School of Engineering Sciences, KTH. The KTH Laser Lab facility comprises of well-established and well-equipped labs which perform research in quantum electronics, material science and expanding range of cross-disciplinary applications using unique tools and methods enabled by coherent light sources.

The KTH Laser Lab has a mission of doing cutting edge research, providing advanced experimental skills for KTH students and supporting research and development needs of users throughout KTH, other Swedish educational and research organizations as well as industry. KTH Laser Lab maintains extensive national collaboration network, Laser-Lab Sweden, which allows local and external users to find the most efficient and qualified support in overcoming their research and development challenges.

Our capabilities

KTH Laser Lab (LLKTH) Research Infrastructure is a cluster of coordinated labs employing coherent light sources as a key tool for the basic and applied research. The major experimental facilities and tools at LLKTH are:

  • Time-resolved angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (PI Oscar Tjernberg ).
  • Ultrafast electron microscopy (PI Jonas Weissenrieder ).
  • Ultrafast and spatially resolved photoluminescence (PI Saulius Marcinkevicius ).
  • THz time-domain spectroscopy and nonlinear optics (PI Valdas Pasiskevicius ).
  • Nonlinear optical structures in ferroelectrics and semiconductors (PI Carlota Canalias ).
  • Laser processing and 3D-printing of glass structures. Design and fabrication of functional optical fibers and sensors. (PI Michael Fokine ).
  • Design and construction of solid-state and fiber lasers, laser materials, and optical characterization (PI Fredrik Laurell ).
  • Optical manipulation of liquids and phase transitions (PI: Jonas Sellberg ).
