POSTPONED - Ceremony and lecture – Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award 2020

​Due to the Coronavirus situation, the ceremony will be postponed. The organizers will be back with a new date during autumn 2020.

Professor Anne L’Huillier, Lund University, Sweden is the winner of the Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award 2020. She will visit the Gothenburg Physics Centre to receive the award and give the traditional award lecture in honour of the Austrian-Swedish physicist Lise Meitner. ​

Professor L’Huillier receives the award “For pioneering contributions to attosecond laser science and technology”.

Professor Anne L'Huillier has been at the forefront of ultrafast laser science since its inception, with her pioneering contributions to high-order harmonic light generation, which is a base technology for attosecond science. Her research has helped foster the field of attosecond science, allowing scientists to visualize the movements of electrons in light-induced processes, which can be used to understand chemical reactions on the atomic level.​
