Laser Processing Group (LPG)  
Group description:
The activity of the Laser Processing Group (LPG) focuses on the study of both fundamental and applied aspects of laser-matter interaction aiming at discovering, understanding and controlling laser-matter interaction phenomena down to the nanometer (spatial) and femtosecond (temporal) scales. As a result, we perform internationally relevant research in the fields of photonics, nanotechnology and ultrafast science. The LPG uses state-of-the-art, laser-based technologies and innovative approaches for the production of nano- and meta-materials and innovative and ultrafast processing methods. These are aimed at producing improved materials and devices. The different applications addressed include photonics/ICTs (waveguide integrated lasers or amplifiers, solid state lightening devices, …), sensors (tailored nanostructures for SERS, multifunctional 3D self-organized nanostructures) and fluidics/tribology applications based on biomimetics or self-organization phenomena.
