Dr. Siefermann gave a talk entitled “Ultrafast Electron Dynamics at Interface” which attracted more than 30 researchers from the field of surface dynamics, ultrafast spectroscopy, photovoltaics and so on. She described her research on the ultrafast electron dynamics on liquid jet, dye sensitized solar cell system and perovskite investigated by femtosecond time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (PES) and photoemission electron microscopy (PEEM) at the molecular level, and had a detailed discussion with the attendees. During her stay, she visited the State Key Laboratory of Molecular Reaction Dynamics, State Key Laboratory of Catalysis and the Division of Solar Energy. Prof. Shengye Jin, Dr. Chuanyao Zhou, Prof. Qiang Fu, Dr. Xiuli Wang, Prof. Xin Guo and Dr. Rengui Li introduced their research and discussed the key questions in the related fields and potential collaboration.
Dr. Katrin R. Siefermann’s Biography
Katrin Siefermann obtained her PhD in 2010 at the Institute of Physical Chemistry, Georg-August-University Gottingen under the supervision of Prof. Bernd Abel. Subsequently, she worked as a PostDoc in Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory with Prof. Daniel M. Neumark, Prof. Steven R. Leone and Dr. Oliver Gessner. Since August 2012 she has been working as a group leader at the Leibniz Institute of Surface Modification (IOM). Her current research interests are concerned with the fundamental understanding of ultrafast processes in complex functional materials, with a particular focus on surface and interface dynamics induced by light. Goal is to understand these systems on a molecular level and their dynamics on femtosecond timescales. Her tools to visualize dynamic processes in these complex systems are innovative and unique techniques from the field of ultrafast spectroscopy. (Text/Photo by Chuanyao Zhou)
