The Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize is the most important research award in Germany and is awarded by the DFG. The Leibniz Programme, established in 1985 by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), honours outstanding scientists and academics, expands their research opportunities, and helps them employ particularly qualified early career researchers. It was awarded in 2022 to Dr. Hommelhoff for his fundamental contributions to electron dynamics driven by strong light fields and the use of optical waveforms of laser pulses to study electrons in a vacuum as well as in solids and at solid surfaces.
