Attosecond Laser Physics

The Attosecond Laser Physics Group aims at an understanding of the physics on the electronic timescale through attosecond spectroscopy.

Research highlights

Beam manipulation
Harmonic Concatenation
Laser pulses with a duration of one femtosecond or shorter can be generated both in the Vis-IR and in the extreme UV, but the deep UV is a spectral region where such extremely short pulses were previously not available.

Harmonic concatenation is our new method for the synthesis of ultrashort pulses, yielding record-short deep UV waveforms of only 1.5 fs!

We are always looking for Bachelor and Master students (contact). For open PhD positions, see our openings
