Victor Hariton awarded the 2016 Gulbenkian Prize for Stimulus to Scientific Research

The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation announced last week the winners of the 2016 edition of its prestigious Prize for Stimulus to Scientific Research. Victor Hariton is one of the two winners in the physics category, for his project “Fab-Laser – Femtosecond ablation of biological samples with shaped laser pulses”. The proposed work addresses the challenge of how to optimize the interaction between ultrashort laser pulses and… Read more

Students of ATHENS international exchange programme visit L2I facilities

Students of ATHENS international exchange programme visited the L2I and got to know the research facility along with members of X-GoLP. The students were introduced to the different topics of investigation carried at the laboratory and had the chance of executing a hands on experience, in particular on measuring wavefront of laser beams.
