Prof. Dr. Stefan Mathias



Our research focuses on ultrafast electronic, magnetic, and structural dynamics in condensed matter, and the development of new experimental methods to study these processes. In particular, we combine the advantages of ultrashort X-rays from high-harmonic generation with ultrafast solid-state research, and explore dynamics at fundamental time- and lengthscales, where all elementary processes can be captured, even at the level of electrons. Current topics involve the study of electronic properties and dynamics in correlated-electron materials, at surfaces and interfaces, in nanostructures, and metal-adsorbate hybrid systems. Details of the ongoing Projects can be found on our Homepage.
