The European project NANOPOLY (FETOPEN 2019 – 2022) conducted in the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL), part of the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH) has been awarded at the European level as a “Key innovator”
Minute crystals, many thousand times smaller than a particle of dust, dressed with the right kind of imperfections, adjust their electronic properties to convert energy into heat, an important attribute for potential use in smart materials for energy, health and sensors.
A major frontier in strong field laser physics and nonlinear optics is the interaction of powerful terahertz (THz) pulses with matter.
