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.
