Bataller Research Group

The Bataller Research Group is focused on investigating the fundamental properties of dense plasma and how materials evolve when exposed to the extreme environments found in current and next-generation nuclear reactors. Dr. Bataller specializes in ultrafast laser and emission spectroscopy and is currently developing the following laboratories:

  1. Ultrafast Plasma Laboratory (UPL)
  2. Molten-salt Ultrafast Spectroscopy Characterization Laboratory (MUSCL)
  3. Nuclear Materials Ultrafast Spectroscopy Characterization Laboratory (NMUSCL)
