On March 1, Dr. Camilo Florian Baron took up a professorship in the field of Extreme Light for Material Structures. After studying at the Universidad Pedagógica Nacional in Colombia, Florian Baron obtained his doctorate in nanosciences at the University of Barcelona, after working as a postdoctoral researcher at the IO-CSIC, the Spanish Centro de Láseres Pulsados (CLPU) and at the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) in Germany. He was then a postdoctoral fellow at the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM), New Jersey, and a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the CSIC, Instituto de Óptica, in Madrid. His research area includes the interaction mechanisms between short and ultrashort laser pulses (ps and fs) with dielectrics, semiconductors and metals, both in the far and near field range. He has contributed to the development of laser-based additive and subtractive processes, including laser-induced forward transfer (LIFT) for printing viscous liquids and functional metal inks, and laser direct writing (LDW) for micro- and nano-machining of materials.
