Keywords: Femtosecond laser, nanophotonic research, numerical modelling, laser formation, artificial three-dimensional frame laser formation, laser formation of nanophotonic elements, Pharos, Light Conversion

Research and services are carried out by using:
1. Light Conversion femtosecond laser system Pharos (from VU OAC Laser Research Centre facility "Naglis");

2. Precision three-coordinate positioning system with a galvanometric beam control subsystem;
3. Technological system for polymeric layer formation and processing;
4. Electronic microscope TM-1000 (from VU OAC Laser Research Centre facility “Naglis”);
5. Unique set of equipment and diagnostics for nanophotonic systems.

Application.

 Laser nanophotonics research:
1. Numerical modeling, laser formation, geometry and optical properties (focus, collimation, phase modulation) description of multifunctional (refractive / diffractive) and integrated (on the optical fiber tip) micro – optical elements (10 – 100 μm).
2. Artificial three-dimensional frame laser formation for cell biology and tissue engineering applications. Biologically inert and degrading polymers can be used and a carcass can be made of several different materials. Pore size and filling factor can be varied from 1 to 100 μm and 20-80%, respectively.
3. Laser formation of nanophotonic elements in polymers and transparent materials. With the laser, two-dimensional and three-dimensional fixed and gradually variable period photonic crystals can be formed. Their period can be from 0.5 to 10 μm. Numerical modeling of these items and characterization of their light control properties.
