ERC-Award for Daniele Brida

The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a Consolidator Grant for Laser Imaging Research to Daniele Brida (Associated Fellow/Dept. of Physics).

Daniele Brida will receive roughly two million Euro over a period of 60 months to use sophisticated laser-based imaging technology to study the properties of materials. He will use the grant to strengthen his team of researchers and to set up a new laboratory. In his project “Ultrafast tunneling microscopy by optical field control of quantum currents – UpTEMPO”, he will utilise ultrafast laser-based instruments to study the inner workings of materials. “Obviously, the research will be done in Luxembourg but I will keep a close collaboration with the University of Konstanz even beyond my association with the Zukunftskolleg”, explains the physicist.

Daniele joined the Zukunftskolleg in April 2013 as a 5-year Research Fellow. Since 1 July 2018, he is Full Professor in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Luxembourg.

We congratulate Daniele Brida and wish him all the best!
