Short CV

Mikel Sanz obtained his Ph.D. from Universidad del País Vasco in 2001, studying the optical properties of rare earth ions in different matrices. After several postdoctoral stays, working mainly in basic and technologic research of nanomaterial and femtochemistry in organized structures and confined media, from 2007, he has been working at Instituto de Química Física “Rocasolano”, Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), in the group "Lasers, Nanostructures and Materials Processing", in different national and international projects, focused mainly in the study of laser-material interactions and laser applications in heritage science.

His areas of scientific interest include the study of laser-induced processes in different systems, laser processing of materials and laser applications in nanoscience and conservation of cultural heritage. He has authored more than 60 peer-reviewed papers and contributed with over 100 presentations at national and international conferences and symposia.
