From 18.9. to 22.9.2022, Lorenz, Rahul, and Sebastian visited the 58th Symposium of Theoretical Chemistry in Heidelberg in Germany. Lorenz presented particle-in-cell simulations of azimuthally polarized beams interacting with metal apertures to generate isolated, amplified magnetic fields. Rahul’s poster showed spin-orbit complete active space second-order perturbation theory computations of Eu3+ ions. Sebastian presented nonadiabatic dynamics simulations using the SHARC software package. We enjoyed very nice talks, poster discussions, hikes, and social get-together.
Today, Edgar Kaksis defended his thesis titled “Scaling of peak and average power in femtosecond ytterbium amplifiers” and obtained his PhD with distinction. Congratulations to Edgar!
