    “We make it visible and learn”
    team — After eight years being part of Attoworld, Peter Baum is now Professor at the Universität Konstanz. His new chair is called “Light and Matter” and he and his team investigate the foundations of atomic and electronic motion in space and time. We have asked him some questions…How did you end up in the laser physics field?I did my master thesis at LMU München with Eberhard Riedle. Actually, I chose at that time the place not only for the science but also for the nice location, so close to the Englischer Garten directly in the city centre. Today, lasers are still our tool, but we mainly work with electrons now, …
