Dr. Baragiola's multidisciplinary research interests are in the areas of atomic physics, solid state physics, astrophysics and space sciences. Specific topics include atomic collisions in gases and solids, sputtering, electron and photon emission from surfaces, Auger processes, surface physics, physics of ice, plasmon excitations, dielectric breakdown and decomposition of insulators, ion beams and ion implantation, physical-chemistry of surfaces of planetary bodies and interstellar grains, and instrumentation for space research. An additional research interest is complexity in cognition, and implications for learning, operations, and industrial design.
