Some of his most remarkable achievements are the generation of the shortest isolated burst of electromagnetic radiation generated to date lasting as short as 80 attoseconds (1 as = 10 to the -18 s) in 2008 as well as the use of such bursts to trace, in real time, the motion of electrons in atoms in 2010. More recently Dr. Goulielmakis and his research group Attoelectronics focused on developing the world’s first Light Field Synthesizer, an experimental apparatus that manipulates extremely broadband light pulses that span from the ultraviolet to the deep infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
It allows scientists – for the first time – to synthesize and to tailor the field waveform of a light pulse with sub-optical cycle resolution and attosecond precision. These light transients offer yet a more sophisticated platform for controlling electrons with light and open up new ways to manipulating the microcosm at unprecedented temporal precision. Important implications of these developments, in the years to come, may be anticipated in areas such as photonics, chemistry and nanotechnology.Dr. Goulielmakis is also the recipient of the Foteinos Prize of the Academy of Athens in 2007 and the “IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Optics” from the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics in 2010. The Gustav Hertz Award will be prsented to Eleftherios Goulielmakis on the occasion of the next annual meeting of the German Physical Society, which will take place in Dresden in March 2013.
