Who We Are
Vision and Values
The Head of the Laser Spectroscopy and Optics (LSO) group is Dr. Angela Staicu.
The group was founded, as Laser Spectroscopy Group (LSG), in 1975 by Prof. Mihail Lucian Pascu, within the Institute of Physics – Bucharest (IFB) which belonged, at the time, to the Romanian Academy. It functioned between 1975 and 1977 as part of IFB, between 1977 and 1996 within the Institute of Physics and Technology of Radiation Devices (IFTAR) - Laser Department and from 1996 to-date as part of the National.
In 2018 LSG took over the Laser Interferometry & Applications (ILA) Group of INFLPR which was founded in 1982 by Dr. Dan Apostol. The new group is denominated currently Laser Spectroscopy and Optics (LSO) Group and includes 17 scientists out of whom – at the moment - 14 PhD in physics, one PhD student, one assistant research scientist and one technician.
What We Do
The scientific activity developed by the group includes:
Within International cooperation projects, the group received and continues receiving scientists from abroad to work within it, particularly on the topics related to the laser physics and laser methods used to develop new medicines and conceived to fight multiple drug resistance of bacteria and cancer tumors.
