team — Matthias Kling, research group leader at LMU and MPQ, received the certificate of appointment for the W2 professorship »Ultrafast Nanophotonics« at Ludwig-Maximilias-Universität München (LMU Munich) from Prof. Martin Wirsing. From now on, Matthias Kling will support the research area »light-wave electronics«at the cluster of excellence Munich-Center for Advanced Photonics (MAP) in research and teaching. Up to now, Matthias Kling’s research focused on light-wave control in complex systems such as molecules and nanostructures. In the future, Matthias Kling and his team also plan to film the collective movement of electrons in nanostructured systems by means of attosecond light flashes in real time. With this, the researchers hope for get even deeper insights into the possibilities to influence electrons on the ultrashort time scale and thus also the optical and electronic properties of nanomaterials. These insights are able to substantially contribute to the development of electronics controlled by light waves.
