The attoworld team welcomes its guests from China, France, and Singapore who will be visiting us over the next two days. From the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, we are pleased to welcome Prof. Zhiyi Wei, Prof. Jiangping Hu, Prof. Li Lyu, Prof. Hongxiang Wei, Prof. Xinghua Lu, Prof. Sheng Meng, and Ms. Qi Fu. They will be accompanied by Dr. Peng Ye from the Paris-Saclay University. From Singapore, we welcome Prof. Zhi-Heng Loh.
This Friday at 1 p.m., Prof. Zhiyi Wei will give a talk on "Development and Applications of Ultrafast lasers at IoP CAS." At 2:30 p.m., Prof. Loh will give a talk on "Capturing transient species in ionized liquid water". Both talks will take place in the Herbert Walter lecture hall at the MPQ.

Here is some information about the speakers:

Prof. Zhiyi Wei’s research focuses on ultrafast laser technology, including the generation, synchronization, phase control, amplification, frequency conversion, and compression of femtosecond laser pulses. In 2013, he and his team generated the first attosecond laser pulses in China.

Prof. Zhi-Heng Loh is an Associate Professor in the School of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at Nanyang Technological University (NTU). His primary research interest is the study of ultrafast ionization-induced phenomena in gases, liquid water, and aqueous solutions probed by femtosecond X-ray to infrared spectroscopy.

Anyone interested is cordially invited to attend the talks!
