Scientific Description
CUSBO provides state of the art laser sources capable of generating extremely short light pulses (few optical cycles) widely tunable from the near-infrared up to the visible-UV in connection with a variety of high resolution measurement techniques for ultrafast spectroscopy. This capability have been recently extended into the soft X-ray region with attosecond pulse generation. CUSBO provides state of the art broad-band instrumentation for optical characterisation of biological tissues, in vitro study of single cells, in vivo pharmaco-kinetics studies and non-invasive functional imaging.

Using the latest all solid state laser technologies together with most advanced optical techniques, CUSBO provides state of the art laser sources capable of generating extremely short light pulses (few optical cycles) widely tunable from the near-infrared up to the visible-UV in connection with a variety of high resolution measurement techniques for ultrafast spectroscopy. This capability have been recently extended into the soft X-ray region with attosecond pulse generation.

Broad-band instrumentation for optical characterisation

CUSBO provides state of the art broad-band instrumentation for optical characterisation of biological tissues, in vitro study of single cells, in vivo pharmaco-kinetics studies and non-invasive functional imaging.
