CNRS Coordinator – Lead beneficary on WP5
The Laboratoire d’Optique Appliquée (LOA) is a public French laboratory under three institutions: CNRS, ENSTA-ParisTech and Ecole Polytechnique. Its research activity covers a broad spectrum of science in the field of ultrafast lasers and their applications: development of intense laser sources, laser-matter interaction and plasma physics, production of compact sources of energetic radiations and particles, multidisciplinary applications of these sources.
UNIGE – Lead beneficary on WP2
The Biophotonics group of the Group of Applied Physics (GAP), headed by Prof. Jean-Pierre Wolf, is specialized in applications of ultrashort, high-power laser pulses, especially to the atmosphere. Prof. Wolf was one of the founding members (with A. Mysyrowicz) of the Teramobile project, which for the first time brought in 2000 the ultrafast laser science to the real atmosphere.
EPFL – Lead beneficary on WP4
EPFL is a public institution founded in 1969, mainly funded by the Swiss Confederation. EPFL is one of the top-ranked institutions in the world for the high quality of its teaching and research. Open to Switzerland and the world, EPFL is centered on its three missions: teaching, research and technology transfer.
HES-SO – Beneficary
The University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland is the largest HES in Switzerland. It is recognized for the quality of its applied research and it offers undergraduate and graduate degrees to its more than 20’000 students in a wide range of engineering and economics majors including Engineering, Design, Management, Social Studies, Nursing and Music. With its 28 schools of higher education, the HES-SO plays a preeminent role in the socio-economic and cultural development of the seven cantons of Western Switzerland and is a recognized player within the Swiss and international landscape of higher education and research.
AMC – Lead beneficary on WP3
ANDRE MYSYROWICZ CONSULTANTS is a consulting company founded in June 2008 and directed by Andre Mysyrowicz. Its activity concerns the research, counseling and development in physics, particularly in the area of intense lasers and the process of filamentation.
