Prof. Dr. Björn Manuel Hegelich
Björn Manuel Hegelich is Team Leader for Shortpulse Lasers & Experiments in the Plasma Physics Group (P-24), Physics Division, of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM, USA, and Adjunct Professor at the University of Nevada, Reno.
He is an internationally renowned expert in the field of laser particle acceleration.
Björn Manuel Hegelich will be a visiting fellow at the CAS in summer 2010. During his stay in Munich, he will work with the group led by Prof. Dr. Dietrich Habs at the LMU-Exzellence Cluster Munich-Centre for Advanced Photonics (MAP). In a cooperative research project, Prof. Habs and Prof. Hegelich aim to investigate the physical fundamentals of an electron mirror as a fundamental concept for the development of a new generation of coherent light sources on the basis of x-rays and gamma rays.
