Great success for our PhD candidate Tobias Boolakee: the Center for Nanoscience at LMU Munich (CeNS) just awarded him the 1st prize of its Nano Innovation Award for strong results around "A light field-driven logic gate in a graphene heterojunction" - congratulations! More information on the CeNS we...

Strong results with deep new insights excellently presented on the poster - that's how you win the poster prize even at the top conferences. This just happened at Atto VIII in Florida to our senior PhD candidate Philip Dienstbier. Congratulations! The title of the poster was "Tracing sub-cycle elect...

In a wonderful collaboration with our partners from Switzerland, we have recently been able to show that the ideas and capabilities we use to accelerate electrons, namely inverse photonic design, are also excellent for generating terahertz radiation from highly relativistic electron beams. For this ...

Last year, Johannes Illmer defended his dissertation with Corona restrictions but with no less success! Congratulations, Dr. Illmer!

Our (already former) postdoc Dr. Yuya Morimoto prevailed in an extremely competitive process and was allowed to start his own independent Hakubi research group at the Japanese Center for Physical and Chemical Research, the world famous RIKEN. Congratulations and all the best for a successful start! ...

Strong success in numbers for the Chair of Laser Physics: four of the approximately 200 most highly cited researchers in their field at FAU in 2020 are and were at this chair: Professors Hommelhoff, Ley and Ristein as well as our former postdoc Dr. Takuya Higuchi -- congratulations to all.

Are you thinking about a master's degree or a doctoral thesis in the broad field of photonics? Until 1.12. you can still apply for one of the coveted places in the Max Planck School for Photonics. We are also participating, which means that as a member of this graduate school you can also join us, b...

As in 2018, the DPG Annual Meeting will be held in Erlangen in conjunction with the Spring Meeting of the SAMOP section. We have taken over the organization of the meeting at short notice and hope to welcome as many interested participants as possible from March 14-18, 2022 in the Erlangen city cent...

Great success for Dr. Christian Heide: for his dissertation "Attosecond-fast electron dynamics in graphene and graphene-based interfaces" he recently won two dissertation awards, namely the one of the Solid State Physics Section of the German Physical Society (DPG) and the one of the German Society ...

From September 27 to 30, the twice-annual conference of the ACHIP (Accelerator on a Chip International Program) collaboration took place in Erlangen, Germany. After 1.5 years, the conference could finally be held in a hybrid format again, so that at least a large part of our colleagues from differen...
