Alfred Leitenstorfer is awarded the Ludwig Genzel Prize 2010

Alfred Leitenstorfer received the Ludwig Genzel Prize on July 8, 2010, in Les Diablerets, Switzerland. This honor is awarded every two years during the International Conference on Low Energy Electrodynamics in Solids (LEES) and supported with an amount of 4000 € by Bruker Optics. Physicist Ludwig Genzel (1922 – 2003) was a pioneer of spectroscopic studies of condensed matter, one of the inventors of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and founding director of the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart. The award is dedicated to Alfred Leitenstorfer „for pushing the limits of ultrafast optical spectroscopy and applying it to fundamental problems in condensed-matter physics“.
