Prof. Andrius Baltuška, from Photonics Institute Vienna University of Technology visited C-UFO on 29th September, 2016 and gave the public talk on "Generation and applications of few-cycle cycle mid-infrared pulses". Prof. Huai-Liang Xu hosted the talk.
Prof. Andrius Baltuška received the diploma in physics from Vilnius University, Lithuania, in 1993 and a Ph.D. degree in chemical physics from the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, in 2000. Since 2006 he is a full professor at the faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Vienna University of Technology. He received a European Young Investigator Award (EURYI) from the European Science Foundation (2004), Ignaz L. Lieben Award from the Austrian Academy of Sciences (2006) and a Starting Grant (Consolidator) of the European Research Council (2011). His group (http://atto.photonik.tuwien.ac.at) works on the development of intense ultrafast laser and parametric amplifiers and applications of fully controlled optical pulses in ultrafast spectroscopy and high-field physics.
