Silva Toledo, Miguel Angel

Miguel Angel received his Licentiate degree in Physics from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), Mexico, in 2016. His thesis project was carried out in the Quantum Optics with X-rays Group at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Germany, where he performed theoretical studies on the interaction of X-ray Free-Electron Laser (XFEL) pulses with gas-phase diatomic molecules. From 2016 to 2018, he did research in the Ultrafast Spectroscopy and Attosecond Science Group at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zürich, in Switzerland, from where he also obtained a Master's degree in Physics. There, his main contributions were realizing VUV-XUV, time-resolved photoelectron angular distribution experiments in gas-phase molecules, the simulation, construction and optimization of a hollow-core fiber compressor and the design of a VUV-XUV, few-femtosecond pump-probe interferometer. In October 2018, he returned to Germany to start a Ph.D. in Physics in the Ultrafast Optics and X-rays Group at the Center for Free-Electron Laser (CFEL) Science to work on waveform synthesis and attosecond science. He is currently also a graduate student of the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Ultrafast Imaging & Structural Dynamics.
