Mission and Objective

CUSBO provides state of the art laser sources capable of generating extremely short light pulses (few optical cycles) widely tunable from the near-infrared up to the visible-UV in connection with a variety of high resolution measurement techniques for ultrafast spectroscopy. This capability have been recently extended into the soft X-ray region with attosecond pulse generation. CUSBO provides state of the art broad-band instrumentation for optical characterisation of biological tissues, in vitro study of single cells, in vivo pharmaco-kinetics studies and non-invasive functional imaging.
