He is co – author of more than 80 papers on refereed reviews and of about 30 refereed proceedings.
After the degree and PhD period, in Siena he substantially contributed to the development of a new Laser Spectroscopy laboratory where he started a research activity on Rubidium isotope separation by LID and on LID on lithium vapors, developing a new diode laser source. He also was a little bit involved in the laboratory of Laser assisted collisions among III group atoms.
He personally found and studied in detail the Light-Induced Atom Desorption, LIAD, on rubidium and cesium. More recently, LIAD was studied on different organic coatings and on porous glasses.
He contributed to the development of a second laboratory devoted to the studies of Laser cooling and trapping and of new spectral sources, in collaboration with INFN groups of Ferrara, Lecce e Bari.
He built a Francium Magneto – Optical Trap at the National Laboratories of INFN in Legnaro (Padua). Francium is the best candidate for measurements of Parity non conservation in atoms, as a possible standard model low energy test. Moreover, this short lifetime radioactive atom is still poorly known in his energy level structure.
He started experiments of Coherence Population Trapping (CPT) on sodium, cesium and rubidium. CPT is a purely quantum effect induced by bichromatic laser radiation on three level systems (lambda- or V- type). He also studied (for the first time in Italy) CPT in nanocells (cells whose thickness is comparable with the laser wavelength).
He started a collaboration on photoionization of radioactive species in the framework of the SPES project of INFN.
He is collaborating since 2016 to INFN "Axioma" project, devoted to the search of dark matter at low energy.
He is referee for the following reviews: The Physical Review A, Physical Review Letters, IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurements, The European Physical Journal D, Applied Physics B, Optics and Laser Technology, Optical Materials, Journal of Modern Optics, Canadian Journal of Physics,The Journal of Chemical Physics.
