Institute of Plasma Physics and Lasers

The Institute of Plasma Physics & Lasers – IPPL is one of the six Institutes of the University Research Center of the Hellenic Mediterranean University.

Research facilities

The flagship of the equipment available to IPPL is the most powerful in Greece ultrashort laser pulse system (power 45 TW 1.1 J, <25 fs, 10 Hz).

LaPlA MSc degree

The main goal of the training program is to prepare high quality scientists and engineers in the field of laser-produced plasmas, laser physics and laser matter interaction.

Research fields

The main research areas of the Institute concern laser matter/plasma interactions, pulsed power generated plasmas and modeling and simulation of these problems.

The Institute of Plasma Physics and Lasers offers the opportunity to implement cutting-edge research, while the combination of its excellent research human resources and the educational activities it organizes has made it an internationally recognized pole of research, innovation and training in the field of laser matter/plasma interaction and plasma physics and technology.

 IPPL is one of the access points of the National Research Infrastructure “ELI – LASERLAB Europe Synergy, HiPER &” (HELLAS-CH) and the leader of the “Fundamental Science Program ” of the ESFRI research infrastructure HiPER.
