Laserlab Göteborg (LLG ) is a network consisting of three major laser laboratories localized at University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg. Each of these laboratories are equipped with several larger laser systems which allow several research projects to be conducted in parallel. The laboratories allow external users to bring in equipment to conduct independent experiments. The network was created in 2017 with the aim to coordinate the use of major laser resource in the Gothenburg area. Members of the network are:

  1. Gothenburg Laser Laboratory for Atomic and Molecular physics (Gothenburgh Photon Factory). The main research fields in this laboratory are laser photodetachment spectroscopy, laser spectroscopy of levitated droplets, infrared spectroscopy of biomolecules and multiparticle electron correlation spectroscopy.
  2. The Westenhoff lab focusses on time-resolved infrared spectroscopy of proteins
  3. Chalmers laboratory for time resolved spectroscopy. Main research here is directed towards solar energy related questions and general photophysics employing time-resolved emission spectroscopy and transient absorption spectroscopy (in the UV-vis-NIR region) covering time-scales between 100 fs and milliseconds.
  4. Attohallen, Gothenburg’s first Attosecond Science Facility, focuses on the investigation of real-time-resolved electron emission processes of low density matter and offers primarily multi-particle correlation spectroscopy techniques as detection systems, while being open for accepting other detection systems and sample environments.

  5. The Brillouin Light Scattering (BLS) Microscopy Facility focuses on the investigation magnetic and elastic excitations using a combination of narrow bandwidth and high reprate lasers.
  6. The Börjesson lab focuses on photophysics and photochemistry using organic molecules. Techniques used includes laser flash photolysis and time-correlated single photon counting.
