Research Teams

Extreme Plasma Physics Team

Extreme Plasma Physics team combines theory and massively parallel simulations to address the highly nonlinear scenarios associated with extreme conditions in the laboratory and in astrophysics involving relativistic flows or high intensity electromagnetic fields. We use the largest supercomputers in the World to address several longstanding scientific questions.

X-GoLP Team

X-GoLP team is capable of executing laboratory experiments, which are focused on laser techniques and optical instruments, to promote the development of improved devices and alternative mechanisms for a more efficient study of laser and optical properties, as well as to test real evidence of theoretical models taken into consideration.
