New sources of terahertz radiation should deliver previously unimagined insights into areas such as the behaviour of water.
Professor Clara Saraceno, member of the Cluster of Excellence RESOLV, was awarded an ERC Starting Grant.
Clara Saraceno was born in 1983 in Argentina. She completed a dual degree in France and received her doctorate in physics at the ETH Zurich (Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich). After receiving her doctorate, she worked as a postdoc at ETH Zurich and the University of Neuchatel in Switzerland. She was awarded the Sofja Kovalevskaja Award by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in 2015. Since 2016, she has been a tenure-track professor at RUB and a member of the Cluster of Excellence RESOLV (Ruhr Explores Solvation, EXC 1069).
She aims to find new highly-efficient sources of light waves in the terahertz range.
