Paola Vega studied Physics at the University of Oviedo (Spain) with 1-year specialization in Atomic and Molecular Physics. Afterwards she began her work on plasma based techniques for spectroscopic characterization of solid materials, which nowadays conforms her PhD thesis.

Thin films are defined as material layers ranging from nanometers to several micrometers of thickness that are deposited onto a matrix in order to modify its physical characteristics. Although solar cells conform a relevant field of application, it may be […]

It is well known that an accurate and energetic laser shot can melt, ionize and excite the material in which the light is focused, creating very bright plasmas after the interaction. Valuable information can be obtained from the light emitted […]
