Overview of the Artemis lasers, beamlines and end-stations


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Engineering drawing of the Artemis facility


Artemis provides ultrafast ​laser sources, XUV beamlines and end-stations for atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter physics and imaging. ​​

Laser sources​

Artemis has two high repetition rate, high average power laser systems:

XUV beamlines

Artemis offers three XUV beamlines:


Artemis has a variety of vacuum end-stations, which can be used with XUV or laser pulses.

For ultrafast dynamics in condensed matter systems, the UHV end-stations are:

  • Time- and angle-resolved photoemission (TR-ARPES)​
  • Time- and spin-resolved time-of-flight (TR-spin-ToF)

For ultrafast dynamics in molecules​, the end-stations are:

  • AMO chamber with velocity-map imaging or electron time-of-flight detector and gas sources
  • Chamber for liquid-phase studies, equipped with a liquid microjet

Applying for access

Artemis is an open access user facility, and we issue calls for proposals twice a year. If you would like to use Artemis, we recommend you first discuss the requirements for your experiment with Artemis staff.​
