FLAME Preparations

Before the pandemic shutdown we were anticipating the arrival of our newest laser system, FLAME. We cleared out and remodeled the magneto-optic trap lab (MOTRIMS) and moved the Kansas Light Source (KLS) there. We then remodeled the old KLS space to accommodate FLAME. We have a photo gallery of the preparations for your enjoyment.

FLAME (Femtosecond LAser for Multi-color Experiments) is a commercial 3-KHz, 5-mJ, 25-fs laser system that will drive several tunable light sources from the infrared to the extreme ultraviolet to allow for multi-color pump-probe experiments investigating light-induced processes in a variety of gas-phase samples. It supports a large number of experiments funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), DOE EPSCoR, and the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Completion of the project is obviously subject to the vagaries of the pandemic, but our current best-guess is August. Stay tuned for more updates on our progress.
