Biography

Frank Hegmann received his PhD in Physics from McMaster University in 1994 and then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Terahertz Science and Technology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. In 1997 he joined the Department of Physics at the University of Alberta and established the Ultrafast Spectroscopy Lab and Ultrafast Nanotools Lab for studying ultrafast phenomena in materials and devices using femtosecond laser sources and time-resolved terahertz pulse spectroscopy. From 2015 to 2019 he was the AITF Strategic Chair in Terahertz Science and Technology. His current research interests include ultrafast terahertz spectroscopy of transient photoconductivity in nanomaterials, exploring ultrafast nanoscale dynamics in materials using terahertz scanning tunneling microscopy (THz-STM), terahertz pulse generation, nonlinear terahertz dynamics in semiconductors, and terahertz pulse control of electron beams.
