About the Author

Frank Träger is a Full Professor of Experimental Physics and Head of the Interdisciplinary Center for Nanostructure Science and Technology – CINSaT at the University of Kassel, Germany.

Frank Träger received the diploma in physics from the University of Heidelberg where he continued his research to earn a Ph.D. in physics in 1974. Following his habilitation, he joined the IBM Almaden Research Center in San José, California, as a guest scientist from 1981 to 1982 and for several sabbaticals until 1986.

Since 1986, he has been an associate Professor at the Institute of Physics of the University of Heidelberg, and since September 1990 a full Professor in the Physics Department of the University of Kassel, Germany. His current research interests are the preparation and characterization of metal nanoparticles and self-assembled functional films, nonlinear optical phenomena, the study and application of nonthermal desorption and ablation phenomena, ultrafast electron dynamics on the femtosecond timescale and, last but not least, imaging of DNA by scanning probe microscopies. In his experiments, tunable laser radiation plays an essential role.

Frank Träger serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the international journal Applied Physics B – Lasers and Optics published by Springer-Verlag. He is a Corresponding Member of the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and of acatech, Konvent für Technikwissenschaften der Union der deutschen Akademien der Wissenschaften e.V.
