University of Regensburg (UREG), Germany

The Physics Department at University of Regensburg (UREG) takes one of the top ranks in third-party funding by the Germany Science Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft – DFG) in solid state physics. Within the Department, the Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics focusses on optics, electric and spintronic transport as well as nano-mechanical properties of quantum-designed semiconducting, metallic and superconducting nanosystems. The institute has a strong background in THz science and technology which is bundled in a dedicated THz center (TerZ Regensburg). Central goals of this center as well as a collaborative research center (SFB689) and a research training group (GRK1570) are the exploration of new concepts for future quantum information and molecular opto-electronics. Professor Huber’s Chair of Experimental Physics at UREG specializes in ultrafast quantum electronics and photonics. This expertise forms the ideal basis for the role of UREG in the characterization of pico- and femtosecond dynamics of saturable absorbers as well as the investigation of the practical limitations of pulse durations and pulse energies possible in modelocked QCLs
