Hans Jakob Wörner wins the 2018 Coblentz Award

HJW
The Coblentz Society will present the 2018 Coblentz Award to Prof. Hans Jakob Wörner at the International Symposium on Molecular Spectroscopy (ISMS) in June 2018.

The research of Prof.Wörner is dedicated to attosecond time-resolved spectroscopy of molecules. His research group has developed several new techniques for measuring the electronic dynamics of molecules on sub-femtosecond and attosecond time scales. In particular, his group has reported the first measurements of attosecond charge migration in molecules, attosecond photoionization delays in molecules and femtosecond soft-X-ray transient absorption spectroscopy. The group of Prof. Wörner has further realized the first attosecond time-resolved measurements in the liquid phase by coupling an attosecond light source to a liquid microjet.

Prof. Wörner’s contributions to science have been recognized by many prizes, including the Coblentz Award (2018), an ERC Consolidator Grant (2017), the Carus medal (2016), the Klung-Wilhelmy Science award (2014), the Broida Prize (2013), the Nernst-Haber-Bodenstein prize (2013), an ERC Starting Grant (2012), the Grammaticakis-Neumann Prize (2012), the Göttingen Academy Prize (2012) and the Ruzicka Prize (2012). Prof. Wörner is an elected member of the German academy of young academics (Die Junge Akademie).
