Ingmar Hartl received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Munich, Germany, in 1999. After a postdoctoral fellowship at MIT in Cambridge, Mass., he joined 3D Systems, in Valencia, Calif., as a Senior Research Scientist. During his tenure at IMRA America, Inc. in Ann Arbor, Mich., his research interests included high power fiber laser frequency combs and extending frequency comb spectroscopy to the mid-infrared and XUV spectral regions. Since 2013 Ingmar is head of DESY’s laser science and technology group, responsible for research, development and operations of ultrafast laser sources for Electron Accelerators and Free Electron Lasers. Current activities include high repetition rate picosecond UV lasers for driving photocathodes and high repetition rate tunable femtosecond OPCPA sources for FEL seeding and pump-probe experiments.
Ingmar is fellow of the Optical Society, has published over 80 journal publications, over 150 conference contributions, and 30 patents. He chaired several laser conferences including CLEO, ASSL, Europhoton and Ultrafast Optics.
For JLT he is handling submissions on the following topics:
- Picosecond and femtosecond fiber lasers and amplifiers
- Nonlinear frequency conversion (especially to MIR and deep UV)
- Specialty fibers for dispersion management and fiber amplifiers
- Coherent combining of fiber lasers
- Ultrafast pulse generators (e.g. picosecond pulse generation using cw lasers and modulators)
- Frequency combs
