Lorenzo Giuffrida works at FZU-ASCR in Prague as senior researcher within the ELI-Beamlines project. He is member of the RP3 team (Particle acceleration by laser research programme) working at the implementation of the ELIMAIA (ELI Multidisciplinary Applications of laser-Ion Acceleration) beamline that is focused on the acceleration of ions by ultrahigh intensity laser for future societal applications.
He is Responsible of studying thin targets (from micron to nm level) for characterizing the laser-driven ion sources in single and repetition rate.
He is also working in the development of a calorimeter detector for characterizing the gamma rays from the laser to target interaction.
He is the responsible of following activities connected to the laser-driven proton boron nuclear reaction.
