Substantial scientific equipment (supersonic molecular beam apparatus, laser systems) has been transferred from Kaiserslautern team to Riga in 2005. The University in Riga made a major investment in providing laboratory infrastructure (laboratory space, renovation, installation of power lines, water cooling system, etc.). A Laser Centre with several simultaneously operated single-mode ring laser systems was established. Supersonic molecular beam with components for optical spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and ion imaging was installed and taken into operation during the first year of the project. The Laser Centre and the Molecular Beam Laboratory were inaugurated on June 10, 2005, with participation of Rector of the University of Latvia, President of the University of Kaiserslautern, Ambassador of Germany in Latvia, a representative from the RDG Marie Curie Fellowship Unit, leaders of partner teams of the project, and other international guests. The established Laser Centre is the largest available and most versatile laser resource in Latvia. It’s infrastructure is continuously being developed, e.g., by adding new tunable single mode laser systems and replacing outdated Ar+ ion pump lasers by more modern frequency doubled cw Nd:YAG lasers. The first supersonic molecular beam apparatus, which was the first of the kind in the country at instalment in 2005, has now been complemented by the second supersonic molecular beam machine. Currently in progress is the work on building the first magneto-optical trap in Baltic states.
