MBI Staff Member – Personal info


Department Head A1

Coordinator of Project 2.1 "Time-resolved XUV-science"

Member of project 2.2 "Strong-field few-body physics"


The recent development of ultrashort bursts of short wavelength radiation opens new routes to image molecules and their dynamics with unprecedent spatial and temporal resolution. In our group, we are implementing time-resolved XUV and X-ray imaging techniques in extended systems from polyatomic molecules to clusters to explore the details of multielectron dynamics and electron-nuclear couplings.

"Strong field ionization of atoms and molecules"

"Ultrafast XUV/X-ray & photoelectron imaging"

"Multiphoton XUV and X-ray ionization dynamics"

"Femtosecond and attosecond molecular dynamics"
