Mücke, Oliver D.

Oliver D. Mücke received the Diploma and Ph.D. degrees in physics from Universität Karlsruhe (TH) [now KIT], Germany, in 1999 and 2003, respectively. From 2003 to 2007, he was a Feodor Lynen Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and later a Postdoctoral Associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE). In 2007, he joined the Photonics Institute at Vienna University of Technology, Austria, supported by a FWF Lise Meitner Senior Postdoc Fellowship (09/2008–09/2010). Since July 2011, he has been a Senior Scientist at DESY CFEL, Hamburg, Germany. His research interests include CEP-stable few-cycle pulse generation from octave-spanning Ti:sapphire oscillators and parametric amplifiers, high-energy sub-optical-cycle waveform synthesis, strong-field physics and attoscience, highly efficient intense THz-pulse generation, laser-driven sources of particles and hard-X-rays, femtosecond frequency-comb technology for optical clocks, extreme nonlinear optics in solids and nanostructures, and lightwave-driven petahertz electronics in quantum materials.
