Welcome to the Huber group at the University of Regensburg!
Many of the fundamental laws and unexpected phenomena in condensed matter physics are caused by extremely fast dynamics of electrons and ions on the femtosecond time (1 fs = 10-15 s) and terahertz frequency scale (1 THz = 1012 Hz). Unravelling such ultrafast processes is the main interest of our research. We develop next-generation, high-intensity femtosecond laser sources and THz technology, and employ them to explore novel femtophysics.

Our lecture on Light Matter Interaction was awarded with the Best Lecture Award of the Faculty of Physics.

Directly watching in slow-motion videos how electrons move in quantum mechanical orbitals and how this motion shapes the functionalities of condensed matter has been a dream shared by all natural and life sciences. Yet, this vision comes with the daunting challenge of mapping the microscopic structure of electronic orbitals with simultaneous ultrafast time resolution.
We will turn orbital cinematography into reality.

|Would you like to delve into the nanocosm and use state-of-the-art ultrafast nanoscopy techniques to investigate the inner workings of matter? What if you could even do that simultaneously at Angström spatial and femtosecond temporal scales? |
Our group has vacant positions for young scientists at the Master's and PhD level to join us in cutting edge research and measurement techniques, opening the doors to solving fundamental and previously untouchable fields in nanoscale light-matter interaction, high-temperature super-conductivity, exciton dynamics and more.
Working closely with colleagues from both scanning tunnelling microscopy and ultrafast optics, your tasks would include design, setup and operation of nanoscopy equipment as well as analysis and modelling of the results with the focus depending on your individual preferences.
You are highly motivated, have a physics background and want to work in a stimulating environment uncovering the mysteries of the nanoscopic world?
