20 years of the PhLAM (1998 > 2018) !
Ferme Beck Eeckelstraete puis au village de Godevarwelde
Born in 1998 from the fusion of the Laboratory of Molecular Dynamics and Photonics (LDMP) and the Laboratory of Hertzian Spectroscopy (LSH), PhLAM has grown considerably over the years to become "an important laboratory for local physics and one of the structuring poles of the North of France" (Extract from the HCERES 2013 report).On November 5, 2018, the laboratory of Physics of Lasers, Atoms and Molecules had the pleasure of celebrating its 20th anniversary by organizing a meeting with former members and directors of the laboratory.
Marc Douay opened the day with the director’s word, followed by the history of the laboratory by the former directors and the presentation of the different research teams and their themes. The lunch was held in a warm and friendly atmosphere at the Flemish Farmhouse of Beck Farm in Eeckelstraete.
This anniversary day continued in the heart of Flanders in the village of Godevarwelde to participate in a fun challenge around traditional Flemish games. Eight teams were confronted friendly to the Flemish ball called "the bourle" and the archery on vertical pole. We concluded this day with a pot of friendship followed by the awarding of prizes to the winners.
