Garching / Stockholm – On Sunday, 10 December, Ferenc Krausz, physics lecturer in Garching, accepted his award together with the other laureates of the Nobel Prizes in Stockholm.

Krausz, born in Hungary, works at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics. Together with L'Huillier and Agostini, he was able to develop a method to create extremely short light pulses. These make it possible to detect even the lightning-fast movements of electrons. L'Huillier, a native of France, is only the fifth woman to receive the Nobel Prize in Physics.
