Dr Eleftherios Goulielmakis, senior researcher of the "Attoelectronics" group at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, will receive this year's Roentgen prize, which is awarded by the Justus Liebig University of Giessen. Dr Goulielmakis will receive this award for his "outstanding contributions to the area of attosecond physics and technology with soft X-rays".
The Roentgen prize of the Justus Liebig University of Giessen has been awarded to junior scientists who have distinguished themselves through excellent scientific work in the basic research of radiation physics or radiation biology in memory of Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen since 1975.
Dr Eleftherios Goulielmakis was born in Heraklion (Greece) in 1975. He studied physics at the University of Crete (Greece), where he obtained a Bachelor's degree in 2000 and a Master's degree in 2002. He earned his PhD at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich in 2005. He has been the senior researcher of the "Attoelectronics" research group at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching since 2010.
Over the last decade, Goulielmakis and his fellow researchers have done pioneer work in the field of extremely short, soft X-ray pulses that last less than 100 attoseconds (one attosecond is a billionth of a billionth of a second). These techniques are used to explore the microcosm and allow images of ultra-fast particles such as electrons to be created, for example.
Goulielmakis and his group just recently developed a new technique that enables ultraviolet radiation to be obtained from solid objects. This technique offers perspectives for enhancing photonics in the area of X-radiation. At the same time, it improves our understanding of how to use light in the future in order to implement light-based electronic circuits that work up to 100,000 times faster than modern computers.
Dr Eleftherios Goulielmakis received the Gustav Hertz prize from the German Physical Society (Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, DPG) in 2012, won the IUPAP award for optics and an ERC Starting Grant in 2010, and was awarded the Foteinos prize by the Academy of Athens in 2007.
The award ceremony for the Roentgen prize will be held on 27 November in Giessen. On this occasion, Dr Eleftherios Goulielmakis will talk about his field of research in a "Roentgen lecture" at the University of Giessen. On 23 September, he will give a lecture on his research at the Deutsches Museum (German museum) in Munich as part of the "Wissenschaft für Jedermann" (science for everyone) lecture series.

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
