Primary activity: Investigation of the mechanisms occurring during laser-plasma interaction at low and high intensity.
Ai high laser intensity, research is focused to the generation of sources of energetic particles (electrons, ions), to the Inertial Confinement Fusion (i.e. via Shock Ignition), to the study of the interaction of intense lasers with nanostructured targets.
At low laser intensities, study of the mechanisms of nanoparticle formation via Pulsed Laser Ablation in Liquid environment, laser ablation, plasma spectroscopy for the elementary analysis of materials (LIBS), microdrilling.


Main experiences acquired: Plasma spectroscopy, Local Thermal Equilibrium (LTE) in plasmas, instabilities, elementary chemical composition of laser plasmas, mechanisms of pulsed laser ablation (PLA), formation and expansion in vacuum, gas and liquid of laser plasmas, formation of nanoparticles via PLA in liquid environment.
