Prof. Dr. Pascal SALIERES
(AttoPhysics Group, LIDYL, CEA Paris Saclay, France)
Pascal Salières is a Research Director and Head of the AttoPhysics Group at the ‘Lasers, Interactions and Dynamics Laboratory’ (LIDYL) of CEA Paris Saclay, France. He graduated from ESPCI-ParisTech graduate school in 1991 and received his PhD degree in Physics from Sorbonne University in 1995, focusing on the coherence properties of high harmonic generation. At CEA, he then developed advanced phase spectroscopy techniques, based on XUV-photon or electron interferometry, for the characterization and application of harmonic and attosecond pulses. Coordinator of the ATTOLab platform, his current research interests are on attosecond electronic and nuclear dynamics studied by high harmonic spectroscopy and attosecond photo-ionization spectroscopy. He is a member of several scientific committees and was awarded national (Grand Prix Jacques Herbrand 2004 of the French Academy of Sciences) and international (OSA Fellow) distinctions.
