Lund - Sweden

Training at Lund Institute of Technology
1-31 July 1996
The coordinators of the LAM Network and ICTP affiliated Centres in Sénégal, Ghana, Sudan and Kenya have benefited of one month intensive training in diode laser spectroscopy in the Division of Atomic Physics at Lund Institute of Technology in Sweeden. The visit was organized thanks to the support of Prof. Svanberg Director of the Atomic Physics Division in Lund and to Prof. Denardo of ICTP and Prof. Hasselgren Director of the International Program in Physical Sciences at Uppsula University. One of the important conclusion of the visit is the simultaneous implementation of operative equipment in diode laser spectroscopy in the four countries.

Objectives of the LAM Network

Written by Administrator. Posted in Uncategorised


In May 1991, the first International Workshop on the Physics and Modern Applications of Lasers was held at the University Cheikh Anta Diop of Dakar with the participation of more than 50 physicists from many African countries. On that occasion, the African LAM Network was launched with the financial support of the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP).


The purpose of the Network is to promote the physics of lasers, atoms and molecules, and their applications, as well as to develop scientific cooperation in these fields in Africa.


The main objectives defined for the LAM Network are the following :

  •     promote the development of the Physics and Fundamental Research on Lasers, Atoms and Molecules and to extend the field of applications of lasers to the benefit of economic development in Africa   
  • promote the exchange of documentation and the circulation of information on recent progress in the Physics of Lasers and their applications, and to inform the public about them
  •  contribute towards the development of teaching and training programmes at school and university levels in the field of Lasers and their applications
  •  develop among the members of the Network exchange in the research, teaching, use of Lasers, and to help organize scientific meeting (seminar, schools, conferences, workshops).

Laser Atomic Molecular And Optical Sciences - A New Challenge For Development In Africa

The Physics of Lasers Atoms and Molecules is now experiencing a prodigious expansion. It concerns an open and fertile field of research which is likely to make major scientific and technological breakthroughs. Moreover, the applications of lasers cover very diverse fields such as medicine, agriculture, optical communications, conservation of environment, industry, etc.

These field of application of lasers are very important for the development of countries that have to cope with the urgent need of finding appropriate solutions to their problems related to higher education, health, agriculture production, and communication issues to these problems our countries are faced with are within our scope, provided that our universities and research institutions are endowed with new and appropriate structures (laboratories and training units) which can undertake high level research projects to fulfill such developmental objectives. This is why we though it is advisable to set up a network at African scale on the Physics of Lasers, Atoms, Molecules and their applications which meet development requirements involving universities and research institutions of our continent.

An operating network in Laser, Atomic, Molecular and Optical Sciences will contribute very much in showing the place and interest of physics and applications of lasers in the reinforcement and development of scientific and technical training capabilities of African universities and in the establishment of development-oriented research. In addition, it will not only enable university members and researchers working in the field of Laser, Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Sciences to break scientific isolation of universities and research structures in Africa, but also it will emphasize the development of cooperation between those structures. This is the new challenge that African scientists have to take up.
