FLAME - Femtosecond Light Amplifiers in the Megahertz regime


FLAME is a two-year SME project funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union.

The project ended on 31 March 2015.

The achievements of the project have been summed up in a video clip.


The FLAME consortium consists of 4 SME participants and two leading research centers as RTD participants. The SME participants are today already present in the ultrafast market, or as providers of characterization/detection equipment. They are in an excellent position to offer new products shortly after the completion of the project.

FLAME will leverage a current revolution in ultrafast laser science and lead to the commercial availability of amplified laser systems with significantly higher pulse repetition rates, higher average powers and shorter pulse durations than has been possible up to now. In addition, the project will develop sophisticated ion and electron imaging detectors tailored to the experimental research carried out with the novel laser systems.


The project is coordinated by Eric Mottay of Amplitude Systemes (Pessac, France).
