Prof. Konstantinos Makris, Associated Researcher of IESL-FORTH, receives a Consolidator Award from the European Research Council (ERC)
K. Makris, Assistant Professor of the Department of Physics of the University of Crete and Associate Faculty Member of the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of FORTH, was awarded a “Consolidator Grant” by the ERC.
The Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser of FORTH (IESL-FORTH) is attempting to shed light on unknown aspects of the exquisite art of Michael Damaskenos by performing an in-situ analytical campaign at the Museum of St. Catherine in Heraklion, Crete.
"Generation of optical Schrödinger “cat” states in intense laser-matter interactions" was published in Nature Physics.
In a theoretical and experimental study published in Nature Physics, an international team of researchers led by Prof. Maciej Lewenstein (ICFO -Spain) and Dr. Paraskevas Tzallas (FORTH-Greece), demonstrates the generation of highly non-classical states of light in intense laser–atom interactions.
