European facility

lab photoThe Centre for Ultrafast Science and Biomedical Optics (CUSBO) has been established at the Department. This facility includes the activities in the field of ultrashort laser sources, non-linear optics, high intensity laser-matter interactions, ultrafast processes in quantum confined materials, non-invasive characterization of biological tissues, wide band fluorescence spectroscopy and imaging techniques in scattering media.


CUSBO is belonging to the network of European Facilities "LASERLAB-EUROPE" funded by European Union within “the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme”.

The network includes 35 leading organisations in laser-based inter-disciplinary research from 18 countries with the aim of:

  • providing in a coordinated manner advanced instrumentations to european research groups;
  • reinforcing the role of Europe in the field of laser research and improving the quality of the participating laboratories by projects related to instrumentation development.


CUSBO is able to host about ten research projects per year corresponding to an average of twenty european users.
