#EXTREMELIGHT was born in 2017 thanks to the Horizon 2020 European Commission Framework. It started as a European Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual research project led by IP Fellow Dr. Airán Ródenas Seguí (Project ID: 747055), at the Institute for Photonics and Nanotechnology (IFN-CNR) in Milano, Italy, and financed by the European Commission. This highly competitive project allowed PI Dr. A. Ródenas to kick-start his independent scientific career.

The key discoveries from the project were accepted for publication in the Nature Photonics journal in November 2018 (link). The #EXTREMELIGHT scientific project continues as one of the main research lines of the LeapLab, led by Dr. Ródenas (tenure-track Ramón y Cajal Professor at the Physics Department and IUdEA institute at Universidad de La Laguna in Spain).
