The Femtosecond Engineered Propagation team is focusing its research on the understanding of the self-channeling process of ultra-high intensity laser pulses in order to control and engineer light channels for stand-off laser-matter interaction.


The fundamental projects are studying the mechanisms of the self-focusing and stabilization of the light channel in gases as well as the phenomena induced by the interaction of filaments with solid surface. The applications developed by the FEP team are covering the creation of controlled arrays of filaments and their application for filament/matter interaction.


The FEP team is mainly using three facilities in LPL:
