Prof. Dr. Giuseppe Sansone
(Attosecond and Strong Field Physics Group, Physics Department, Albert-Ludwigs-University, Germany)
Giuseppe Sansone received his PhD in 2004 at the Politecnico Milano, Italy, where he continued his career first as assistant professor and then as associate professor. In 2007, he visited the Laser Technology Laboratory RIKEN, Japan with a JSPS Short-Term Postdoc Fellowship. In 2009-2010, he received an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship to work in the group of the Max-Planck-Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg on the combination of coincidence spectroscopy with attosecond sources. He also contributed to the development of the Extreme-Light-Infrastructure Attosecond Light Pulse Source in Szeged (Hungary), initially as division head of the secondary sources and then as scientific advisor.
In 2016, he became full professor for experimental physics at the University of Freiburg where he leads the Attosecond and Strong Field Physics group. His research interests are focused on attosecond metrology at free-electron lasers and on the investigation of ultrafast dynamics in molecules using coincidence spectroscopy.
