Optics and Laser Physics
The laboratory is located within the Synchrotron Light Facility Elettra, in Trieste. The close link with ICTP is, however, kept through the ICTP Associates, who can spend their stay in the laboratory, and through the annual ICTP Winter Colleges on Optics.
The laboratory collaborates with ICTP on the programmes of optics and atomic physics. The main research lines are:
- Applications of femtosecond lasers to Free Electron Laser development
- Physics and applications of short pulse lasers
- Diagnostics of VUV and soft X-ray light pulses
