Professor Frenc Krausz awarded the 2022 Wolf Prize in Physics#

Professor Ferenc Krausz, member of the Physics and Engineering Sciences section since 2012 and professor of Physics and Chair of Experimental Physics at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, was awarded the 2022 Wolf Prize in Physics (jointly with Anne L'Huillier and Paul Corkum) for “for pioneering contributions to ultrafast laser science and attosecond physics”.

Professor Pavel Exner, the chair of the Physics and Engineering Sciences section writes:

"Ferenc Krausz is of Hungarian origin, his carrier is associated with Vienna, and in last twenty years with Munich. His main achievements concern very short light pulses. His research team were the first to create pulses lasting less than one femtosecond laying thus foundations to attosecond physics and technology. These tools allowed to observe electron motion within atoms in real time and led to important applications, in particular, in measuring of electric-field molecular fingerprints of blood samples."
