Operative responsibile of SPRINT Lab

I am a researcher at the SPRINT high harmonic generation lab. My expertise is concentrated on femtosecond lasers, nonlinear spectroscopies and on the design and implementation of experimental setups for optical  and ultraviolet lasers.

My research activity is focused on non-linear spectroscopy on condensed matter and time-resolved “pump and probe” spectroscopy based on table top and free electron lasers.

In the last years I am involved on spin and time resolved electron spectroscopy and four wave mixing experiments on magnetic materials.
