Mohammed Hassan

Assistant Professor of Physics

Classification: Primary Faculty

Education: Ph.D. Physics, 2013, Max-Plank Institute for Quantum Optics- Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich

Fields of Study: Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics and Condensed Matter Physics

Research Interests: 

My research focuses on achieving the attosecond temporal resolution in electron microscopy by generating attosecond electron pulses and establishing “Attomicroscopy” field. Which will be utilized for recording movies of electronic and atomic motion in Action.

Honors and Awards: 

The Air Force's Young Investigator Award- 2019

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Grant Award- 2018

Max-Plank Research Fellow- 2009
