Prof. Biaggio is a condensed matter physicist who is an expert in nonlinear optics. By studying the interaction of laser light (often in the form of short pulses) with matter he investigates single- and multi-photon excitation and relaxation of various systems, from molecules to the dynamics of excitons or charge carriers. Prof. Biaggio is also studying multi-photon processes and nonlinear optics as the key to using certain optimized materials to enable light-light interaction, which would have far-reaching applications in all-optical data processing and all-optical switching.
