Jens Biegert

Jens Biegert received his B.S. from Würzburg University in Germany, M.S. in Physics from the University of New Mexico in the United States and his PhD from the Technical University Munich, Germany, in 2001. At the same time he became Research Assistant Professor at the University of New Mexico U.S.A. During his habilitation at ETH in Zurich from 2001 until 2006, he lead the research group on ultrafast pulse generation and strong field physics. In 2007 he became Professor at ICFO, was appointed ICREA Research Professor and he heads the Attoscience and Ultrafast Optics group at the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO). He has over 100 journal publications, authored 4 book chapters (2 chapters in encyclopedias), given over 75 invited and 150 contributed talks and edited one book. He has served on several conference panels, as guest editor for the J. Mod. Optics, as editorial board member of the Int. Journal on Atomic Molecular, Condensate & Nano Physics and the Journal Optics. He is fellow of the German National Academic Foundation, was recipient of a Marie Curie Fellowship in 2001, the OSA Allen Price in 2004, and was named Research Professor in the USA in 2012. His research interest lies in the highly interdisciplinary field of attosecond physics which fuses ultrafast laser physics, extreme nonlinear optics, atomic and molecular physics, XUV synchrotron optics, UHV technology, and electron-ion coincidence imaging techniques.
