USAL CLPU Chair

 
The Laser-Plasma Chair at the USAL has been promoted by the CLPU
The advisory committee was created in 2014 by CLPU with the main goals:
-To promote and develop Laser-Plasma physics at the University of Salamanca and in Spain
-To support the experimental activities in the VEGA system by driving both a national and International User community.
 
The main research lines of LaPlas are:
Laser-driven charged particle acceleration for imaging, biomedical application, heritage conservation, and isotope generation.
- Laser-driven plasmas at extreme conditions.
- Inertial confinement approach to Fusion.
- Laser-Plasma and particle beam diagnostic techniques and numerical simulations.
 
The Laser-Plasma Chair organize and support several national and
International activities among which:
- Master courses on laser-plasma physics and related diagnostics (2 ECTs).
- Ph.D. programs on laser-plasma physics and applications 5 are currently opened.
- A laser-plasma international summer school every 3rd Week of September.
 
The LaPlas is also involved in two masters courses at the USAL:
i) Máster Universitario en Física y Tecnología de los Láseres (2 ECTs).
ii) Retos sociales de la ciencia y la tecnología de frontera (2 ECTs).
 
LaPlas is involved in several European projects H2020 and ERASMUS+ and several experiments at the CLPU, in the laser laboratories in the EU and abroad are periodically organized under the umbrella of the Chair. More information>>
