As one of two researchers in Sweden, Anne L’Huillier will receive an ERC Proof of Concept Grant in the second call for 2023. A total of 66 researchers from 14 different countries will receive grants.

Anne L’Huillier, professor at Atomic Physics, Department of Physics and an associated member of NanoLund receives funding from the European Research Council (ERC) for the project “SICEP, Single-shot, high repetition rate detection of the Carrier-Envelope-Phase of ultrashort laser pulses”.

New compact device for ultrashort laser pulses

“In collaboration with a deep-tech company, Sphere Ultrafast Photonics, located in Porto, Portugal, we will develop a new compact device for the characterization of ultrashort laser pulses. The idea originates from a talented research engineer, Chen Guo, together with associate professor Cord Arnold”, says Anne L’Huillier. 

The ERC Proof of Concept is organized by the European Research Council (ERC) and gives researchers who have already received funding from the ERC the opportunity to further develop their research results. The grant amount is €150,000.

The second Swede receiving the grant in this round is Ian Hoffecker from Royal Institute of Technology with the project: “MESH_CHIP, Spatial transcriptomics chips with sequencing-based microscopy.”
