The Neue Züricher Zeitung is currently featuring an article about phase-contrast x-ray imaging and the new Center for Advanced Laser Applications (CALA), which is currently under construction. The reporter interviewed members from the Cluster of Excellence, Prof. Ferenc Krausz and Prof. Franz Pfeiffer.
In a TV portrayal of Franz Pfeiffer, BR alpha features the way in which a new X-ray method will improve diagnostics of cancer and osteoporosis.
Molecular biologist Dr. Mihaela Zigman’s career trajectory has brought her to Munich as a member of the MAP Excellence Cluster. Here, she will supervise the biomedical side of a new interdisciplinary project in Prof. Dr. Ferenc Krausz’s Department. The project aims to employ high-intensity femtosecond pulses of infrared laser light to detect specific molecules present in vanishingly small amounts in human cells, blood samples or respired air.
We interviewed her to learn about her research and the work she is doing in the MAP Excellence Cluster.
