Marc Vrakking appointed editor-in-chief of "Journal of Physics B"

Prof. Marc Vrakking, Director Area A of the Max Born Institute was appointed editor-in-chief of the "Journal of Physics B" on 1 January 2018. He succeeds Prof. Paul Corkum, "University of Ottawa", who has been working in this capacity since 2011.

The Journal of Physics B, a publication of the British Institute of Physics (IOP), is one of the major journals in the field of atomic, molecular and optical physics (AMO). Especially in the fields of strong field physics, attosecond research as well as in the field of free electron lasers the magazine plays an important role. This is reflected in a large number of important contributions (in the categories "Topical Reviews", "Tutorials", "Special Issues" and "Roadmaps"), which are published continuously in the journal. There are numerous points of reference between the topics of the journal and the research program of the A section at the Max Born Institute.
