Dr. Siozos Panagiotis
PostDoctoral Fellow
  • Panagiotis Siozos (PhD in the field of interaction of strong laser pulses with molecules from Physics Department, University of Ioannina, Greece). He has research experience for over ten years in various research fields related to laser-physics and he is involved in a number of research projects having a significant number of publications and participation in conferences. Currently he is working at IESL-FORTH as research assistant. His research interests include the development and optimization of mobile instrumentation on laser and optical spectroscopic methods (i.e. LIBS, Raman and Diffuse Reflectance) with emphasis to the development of analytical methodologies for their broad implementation in the study and investigation of Cultural Heritage materials (i.e. automatic detection of chemical elements and characterisation of LIBS spectra etc.).
