Lukas receives a grant from the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung for his project on photoelectron spectroscopy with high frequency-time resolution.

Lukas Bruder, Institute of Physics: ‘Eine neue Art der Photoelektronenspektroskopie mit hoher Frequenz-Zeit-Auflösung’ [A new kind of photoelectron spectroscopy with high frequency-time-resolution]

Period: June 2021 to May 2024, grant: 137,000 euros

On the microscopic level, nature is driven by fundamental molecular processes. These processes can be very complex and fast, making their investigation a difficult task. One established method for studying molecular systems is photoelectron spectroscopy. There are two variants: high-resolution and time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy. The first provides particularly detailed information about the energy states and structure of molecules, the second enables tracing molecular processes in real time. Until now researchers have had to choose between the two options when designing an experiment. Physicist Lukas Bruder is developing a new method that allows switching between the two options continuously within the same experiment. In this way, researchers can adapt an experiment optimally to the time scales and energy structures of the molecules and thus obtain maximum information. Developed in Freiburg, the experimental concept will be tested in large-scale research facilities in Europe.

The Baden-Württemberg Stiftung gGmbH was founded in 2000 as the Landesstiftung Baden-Württemberg based in Stuttgart. It aims to pave the way for cutting-edge research and ensure diverse training methods and responsible dealings between people. The Baden-Württemberg Stiftung is one of Germany’s major foundations.
