Martin Kaumanns (in the middle of the picture) says "Goodbye" to the attoworld team. “The last seven years were quite a journey with a lot of new experiences and more lasers than I could have ever imagined”, he says. “Something unique in this group that I do not expect to find anywhere else and that I am certainly going to miss is the possibility to read into a completely new topic, collect some questions and then be able to essentially visit your colleague next door to get those questions answered. And this colleague is not only proficient in this topic but is typically one of the leading experts in this field. So much world class knowledge covering so many topics concentrated in a single place will be difficult to find again."

Martin will move to Oberkochen. There he will take up a position with the Zeiss company as a scientific assistant in the field of lithography.
