Ferenc Krausz: The paparazzo of electrons
July 26, 2012
Ferenc Krausz is considered the founder of attosecond physics. His goal is to develop new laser techniques to track the movement of electrons in atoms, molecules and solids in real time and thus observe quantum mechanical processes directly. This new film explains the research of the Director of the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Munich.
Ferenc Krausz, born in 1962 in Mor, Hungary. Diploma with distinction in electrical engineering, Budapest University of Technology (1981-1985), theoretical physics, Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Faculty of Physics (1981-1985), doctorate with distinction in laser physics - Vienna University of Technology (1987-1991), Habilitation in laser physics - Vienna University of Technology (1991-1993), Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering, Vienna University of Technology (1996-1998), Professor of Electrical Engineering, Vienna University of Technology, Austria (1999-2004), Director and Scientific Member at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (since 2003), Professor of Experimental Physics at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (since 2004).
