We have open postdoc positions in ultrafast electron microscopy.

The electron microscope can now measure electromagnetic waveforms. See also the interview at Welt der Physik (in German).

We now compress and control our electron pulses with terahertz radiation. See also the press release and movie!

We could achieve 5-fs laser-electron synchronization recently.

What happens deep inside of future's ultimate electronics? This is to be recorded in space and time by Dr. Peter Baum and his team, funded with two million € via an ERC Consolidator Grant.
