As far as research activities are concerned he is author of more than 100 works published on international review in theoretical physics, nuclear physics, econophysics, environment and energy problems.
He is author of two books about floating PV technology ("Submerged and Floating Photovoltaic Systems", Academic Press 2017, and “Floating PV Plants”, Academic Press, 2020).
We asked Professor Rosa-Clot recall his experience at CRS4:
“I had the pleasure and the honor to be scientific director of the CRS4 research department for six years from 1998 to 2003 and I remember them as very beautiful years.
It was a great intellectual experience and fun to work under the guidance of two great personalities like Prof. Rubbia and Prof. Cabibbo, whom I remember with admiration and affection, but above all I found there capable and interesting people both at an administrative and a scientific level. In addition to my personal friendship with Selis and Pinna, all the area managers were people of great worth from whom I learned a great deal. Furthermore, the many researchers with whom I collaborated for specific work were always up to the challenges required by the frontier work of the CRS4.
I hope that the CRS4 enterprise will continue on its way to ever higher goals. Rubbia's initial vision remains correct and the development of the center can only be positive.
Best wishes to all”
