Events organized in NBU
Public lecture "Ultrafast nonequilibrium dynamics of matter induced by the interaction with ultrashort laser pulses: plasmonics, nanostructuring and generation of high harmonics" Sources of radiation in the extreme ultraviolet range and its applications Building 2, Hall 607 Organizer: Telecommunications Department Lecturer: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tsveta Apostolova After a brief review of the concepts of light such as electromagnetic radiation and corpuscular-wave dualism of its nature, as well as the physical principles of pulsed laser radiation, the microscopic mechanisms of laser energy absorption related to changes in the optical and structural properties of crystal will be considered. lattice of semiconductors and dielectrics interacting with ultrashort laser pulses. Some of the most important applications resulting from this interaction will be shown - diamond graphitization for the creation of three-dimensional particle detectors; the occurrence and propagation of surface waves caused by oscillations of the electron density and the associated electromagnetic field for the manufacture of metamaterials and innovative optoelectronic devices; generate high harmonics. The physical processes in matter during interaction and with radiation in the extreme ultraviolet range generated by laser sources will also be described. Applications in the field of lithography and characterization of materials for quantum calculations will be discussed.
SEMINAR "MATERIAL ENGINEERING OF DIAMOND AND APPLICATIONS IN RADIATION DETECTORS AND QUANTUM TECHNOLOGIES" Building 1, hall 616, 11/08/2018 Organizers: Research Center "Institute for Modern Physical Research", Telecommunications Department Lecturer: Professor Silvio Shortino Moderator: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tsveta Apostolova The lecture will discuss the creation of three-dimensional graphite electrodes in synthetic diamond by irradiation with femtosecond laser pulses. It will be explained why diamond detectors with a three-dimensional architecture are the fastest and most radiation-resistant devices ever invented and why they best meet the experimental requirements of high-energy physics at CERN. The lecture will also explain the application of synthetic diamond as the closest to human tissues, in radiation dosimetry and radiotherapy and will show preliminary results from the use of three-dimensional diamond sensors in this field of medicine. Professor Silvio Shortino Since 1999, Professor Shortino has been working in the Department of Physics at the University of Florence. His research is carried out at the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics and in collaboration with international collaborations for the synthesis and characterization of artificial diamond for the manufacture of radiation detectors, photonic devices and dosimetry.
