Martin Wolf

Martin Wolf received his PhD there in 1991 with Gerhard Ertl for studies on surface photochemistry from Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin. After a postdoc period in Austin, Texas, with Mike White, he set up a laboratory for femtosecond surface spectroscopy at the Fritz-Haber-Institute of the Max-Planck Society and was also a visiting scientist at IBM Yorktown Heights with Tony Heinz. In 2000 he was appointed full professor for experimental physics at the Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin. Since 2008 he has been director of the Physical Chemistry department at the Fritz-Haber-Institute in Berlin.

His research focuses on the dynamics of elementary excitations at surfaces, interfaces and in solids, ultrafast photoinduced dynamics and transient electronic structure in correlated materials, interfacial electron transfer, photochemistry and vibrational spectroscopy at interfaces.
