Birthplace: Brazil

Ricardo Elgul Samad graduated in Physics in 1993, obtained his master's degree in Solid State Physics in 1997, and completed his doctorate in Solid State Physics in 2006, all from the Physics Institute of the University of São Paulo. Currently he is a Researcher in the Center for Lasers and Applications at the Institute for Energy and Nuclear Research (IPEN-CNEN). He has published more than 100 articles in specialized journals, which have more than 870 citations in Web of Science, 3 book chapters and more than 150 works in event annals, in addition to having submitted 3 patent applications. Since his Scientific Initiation, he has worked on the development and applications of solid state lasers, and during his doctorate he began research activities on ultrashort pulse lasers, having developed the laser with the highest peak power in the Southern Hemisphere, with 0.5 TW. He currently works with ultrafast phenomena arising from applications of ultrashort pulses and their interaction with matter, having already worked with the ablation and machining of solids by ultrashort pulses, laser-induced plasma generation and modification of materials resulting from extreme states of temperature and pressure generated by laser pulses, and harmonic generation techniques to enable new light sources in the deep UV and soft X-ray region. Recently, he has been developing activities in particle acceleration using ultrashort laser pulses. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
