PROF. STEFAN SKUPIN

Stefan Skupin was holding a Carl Zeiss endowed Junior Professorship at the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena from 2009 until 2013. He was the head of a junior research group for Computational Photonics at the Institute of Condensed Matter Theory and Solid State Optics. At the same time, Stefan Skupin was and is affiliated with the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden. During his time in Jena and with the ACP, he showed an outstanding engagement in teaching many B.Sc. and M.Sc. students, including lecturing Fundamentals of Modern Optics, Structure of Matter, Computational Physics, Nonlinear Optics and Waveguide Theory.

By the end of 2013, Stefan Skupin was appointed as Professor of Physics at the Université Bordeaux 1. The main focus of his ongoing research is the interaction of high-intensity, ultra-short laser pulses with matter, and, in particular, its numerical modeling. His research thrusts include

  • novel light sources from high-intensity laser matter interaction,
  • nonlinear ultra-short pulse generation and propagation,
  • pattern formation, solitons, vortices and topological excitations,
  • Bose-Einstein condensation phenomena,
  • laser-based charged particle acceleration and relativistic optics, and
  • large-scale parallel computing, hardware accelerators.
