After a short ride, leading through the whole campus, Seehofer went to the new Attosecond Science laboratory, which is run by the KSU in cooperation with the LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics. Here, Saudi Arabian Scientists and their Munich colleagues will research the movements of electrons together. Seehofer was impressed by the complex fundamental research and the unique collaboration. LMU rector Prof. Bernd Huber and Prof. Badran A. Al-omar (rector of the KSU), joined many journalists and members of the delegation for Seehofer’s visit to the lab, which lasted about half an hour.
