The ceremony took place at the Institute of Physics of the Freiburg University (Germany) and followed a very well attended seminar (Physikalisches Kolloquium) presented by the winner on the topic: “From Extreme Nonlinear Optics to Ultrafast Atomic Physics”.
The event was organised by Prof. Andreas Buchleitner, speaker of the section Atoms, Molecules, Quantum Optics and Plasmas of the German Physical Society [DPG]. The pro-rector of the University, Prof. Margit Zacharias, was present as well as Prof. Gregor Herten, speaker of the section Matter and Cosmos of the DPG.
