Our Center consists of three laboratories with specific activities.
The research activity of the CETAL-PW laboratory is focused on the interaction of ultra-short high-intensity lasers with matter and its aplications: plasma physics and diagnostics, production of sources of energetic particles and radiation and their applications in different scientific fields (medicine, chemistry, space science).
Laser Materials Processing Laboratory supports fundamental research and industrial applications in the field of laser materials processing. The R&D focuses on laser processing of various materials (polymers, glasses, ceramics, metals, composites) at macro-, micro- and nanometer scale. The research results emerge in cutting edge technologies for the industrial sector.
Photonic Investigations Laboratory is focusing on application and development of optical characterization techniques to the study of solid-state and biological phenomena at micro- and nanoscale. New technologies are applied and developed for material characterization, optical interrogation and study of phenomena at cellular level.
The high power laser infrastructure includes two main systems:
The laser processing infrastructure includes:
- Laser system for 2D and 3D laser lithography
- Picosecocond laser workstation for microprocessing (galvano-scanners and ultraprecise stages)
- Tunable CW CO2 Laser source
