Çankaya, Hüseyin

Huseyin Cankaya received his BS degree in Physics (2004, Koc University in Istanbul) and his MS and Ph.D. degrees in Materials Science and Engineering (2006/2011, Koc University in Istanbul). After his Ph.D. study, he joined the Center for Free Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY), Germany and is currently working as a Senior Research Scientist. His research interests include high-energy, high-power solid-state laser/amplifier development, nonlinear optics, ultrafast optics, ultrafast optical parametric amplifiers, ultrafast pulse characterization techniques, nonlinear spectral pulse broadening, mid-infrared lasers, electron acceleration/manipulation via THz pulses and recently electron acceleration in dielectric laser accelerator. He received an SPIE scholarship in 2006, OSA student grants in 2009/2010, 'Successful PhD Student Award' from Koc University in 2011 and 'Serhat Ozyar Successful Young Scientist Award' in 2012. His research profile is available here.
