Ultra-short time scales form the field of work of Prof. Dr. Alfred Leitenstorfer. They are so short that they no longer can be detected with electronic time sensors, but only with optical devices – with lasers. The professor of experimental physics and director of the Centre for Applied Photonics (CAP) at the University of Konstanz was awarded the Advanced Grant of the European Research Council (ERC). This is the most highly endowed research prize at the European level.
