Christian Brahms

Research Fellow

Heriot-Watt University

Chris joined LUPO as a postdoctoral research associate in 2018 after finishing his PhD with Prof Jon Marangos at Imperial College London. He spent the next three years on the HISOL project, developing and extending soliton-based light-source technology and working with our international collaborators to exploit their capabilities for ultrafast science. In 2021 he joined the u-Care project and built a first-generation compact soliton-based DUV laser source for biomedical applications. In 2022 he was awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship to develop high-performance vacuum ultraviolet laser sources for science, industry and healthcare. His research interests, besides the light-source development itself, lie in using these cutting-edge ultrafast and ultrabroadband laser pulses to address some of the most challenging questions in fundamental ultrafast science.
