Professor Patrizio Antici of Centre Énergie Matériaux Télécommunications at INRS has once again garnered international recognition for his work, having just been elected a Fellow of the Institute of Physics (IOP) for his outstanding scientific achievements in physics, particularly in the field of laser-generated particle sources.
Professor Antici develops new types of particle accelerators using intense lasers for applications in the life sciences, medicine, basic physics, astrophysics, material sciences, and inertial confinement fusion. He is a member of numerous international groups of experts, including Extreme Light Infrastructure, which is setting up laser-accelerated particle beams.
Professor Antici was also elected a Fellow of the European Physics Society earlier this year.
The Institute of Physics (IOP) is the leading scientific society in the United Kingdom, with a rich history dating back to 1874. IOP's 50,000 members from around the world work together to advance and disseminate pure and applied physics knowledge and education for the benefit of society.
INRS is a graduate-level research and training university and ranks first in Canada for research intensity (average grant funding per faculty member). INRS brings together some 150 professors and close to 700 students and postdoctoral fellows at its four centres in Montreal, Quebec City, Laval, and Varennes. Its applied and fundamental research is essential to the advancement of science in Quebec and internationally even as it plays a key role in the development of concrete solutions to the problems faced by our society.
