ERC Consolidator Grant for Hans Jakob Wörner

erc-wörner
4.12.17 - Professor Hans Jakob Wörner (ETH Laboratory of Physical Chemistry) has been awarded a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council.

The elementary processes involved in chemical reactions and biological transformations take place incredibly quickly: when chemical bonds break or reform, it happens in attoseconds (10-18 s). Electrons in atoms, molecules, solids and liquids move on this time scale. Hans Jakob Wörner, ETH Professor of Physical Chemistry, is a pioneer in the field of attosecond spectroscopy, and holds the world record for the shortest ever laser pulse. In his latest ERC project – Wörner is already the recipient of an ERC Starting Grant – he now wants to further develop X-ray spectroscopy methods so that electron movements can also be directly examined on attosecond time scales in complex molecules and during the aqueous phase. One potential application is in solar cells.

The European Research Council’s (ERC) Consolidator Grants are given annually to researchers of any nationality with 7-12 years of research experience after completion of their PhD, as well as “a scientific track record showing scientific talent and an excellent research proposal”. The Consolidator Grants, which generally provide funding for five years, are part of the ERC’s commitment to support “the highest quality research in Europe with competition-based financing”, with the ultimate aim “to establish and solidify European research as cutting-edge research.”
