Dr Sarri works on developing and using ultra-intense lasers to generate exotic states of matter and study their unique properties. In particular, he works on the next generation of ultra-compact particle accelerators, laboratory astrophysics(reproducing, in the labroatory, conditions found close to black-holes and massive stars), generation of high-quality x-ray, gamma-ray, and positron sources, and high-field quantum electrodynamics.
He is a member of European programmes ELI, EuPRAXIA, ALEGRO, PWASC, EuroNNAC, ARIES.
Open to PhD applications in the field of
- Laser and plasma physics
- Particle acceleration and applications
- Laboratory astrophysics
- High-field quantum electrodynamics both from an experimental and theoretical point of view
