Chimia - LACUS
Special Issue on the Lausanne Centre for Ultrafast Science (LACUS), organised by Majed Chergui.

The present edition of CHIMIA samples a selection of articles showing the capabilities of LACUS such as: the new Harmonium facility for ultrafast photoelectron spectroscopy of gases, liquid solutions and solids (time and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy or tr-ARPES), the swissFEL facility, the deep-UV spectroscopy capabilities at the LOUVRE lab, the sum-frequency methods to probe interfacial structure and dynamics, the femtosecond laser machining of materials and theoretical methods. These papers exemplify the capabilities of the methods by recent results of studies on molecules, solid materials and proteins.

This selection of articles is far from exhaustive as LACUS includes several other groups, such as, unique in Switzerland, those developing and using ultrafast electron diffraction and microscopy (F. Carbone and U. Lorenz), in addition to the groups using pulsed Terahertz and optical domain radiation for probing the charge carrier dynamics in solar materials (J. E. Moser and A. Hagfeldt), ARPES (H. Dil), frequency combs (T. Kippenberg) and theory (U. Röthlisberger).

In summary, LACUS represents a truly interdisciplinary centre dedicated to the development of new methods of ultrafast science methods and techniques and their applications in chemistry, photonics, materials science, and engineering. It also bridges the lab-based activities in X-ray science with those at the Paul-Scherrer-Institut using the Swiss Light Source synchrotron or soon, the swissFEL free electron laser. Finally, LACUS is open to the Swiss ultrafast science community within the NCCR MUST and beyond.
