Martin Schultze: Attosecond spectroscopy tracks electron dynamics

Early fascination with attosecond pulses led to curiosity about what phenomena could be studied.

13 September 2016, SPIE Newsroom. DOI: 10.1117/2.201609.02

Martin Schultze is a member of the Division of Attosecond Physics at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany). He is also part of the Faculty of Physics, Ludwig-Maximilians University (LMU), Munich. Schultze studied physics at the ETH Zurich and received his PhD at the LMU Munich, Germany for attosecond gasphase experiments leading to the discovery of the unexpected delay in the photoelectric effect. In the groups of Ferenc Krausz at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and Steve Leone at the University of California, Berkeley, he established attosecond spectroscopy as quantitative tool to time resolve solid-state electron dynamics that now allows to test the suitability of novel regimes of extreme light-matter interaction for ultrafast signal manipulation.
