Recorded in the summer, broadcast on BR Alpha in October -- and only now the link is here, but research is not so fast that the content of this Campus Talk is already outdated. Without slides, without pictures and with words alone, the speakers are allowed to present their research in 13 minutes. Pr...

A highly interesting and in every respect entertaining three days at Hirschberg Castle are behind us. A series of lectures by members of the chair and two by our research partners around Dr. Martin Kozák from Prague formed the scientific framework; the castle cellar was the gathering point in the ev...

Guiding, splitting and even storing electrons with the help of novel chips, plus investigations into Smith-Purcell radiation - Michael Seidling has certainly earned his doctorate with this. Congratulations!

At the EuroNAAc4 Conferece on the beautiful island of Elba, our PhD student Stefanie Kraus received the prize for the best poster -- her topic was the acceleration of electrons using nanophotonic structures.  Congratulations!

Dr. Klaas-Jan Tielrooij has published a highly interesting commentary on our light-fast logic gate paper. In his article for Nature Materials, he discusses insights worth reading about the fundamentals of ultrafast processes, but also comments on how our light-field-based logic gate might enter opto...

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!
