Gerd Priebe developed and implemented the moving photo carrier grating technique to determine the electronic transport parameters of semiconductors at the Hahn Meitner Institute, Berlin, Germany, and received his Diploma degree in physics in 1994. He completed his Ph.D. degree at the Optical Institute of the Technical University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany, where he was accountable for the project Fabrication and Characterization of Quasi-Phase-Matched NLO-Waveguides Using NLO Polymers. After working for one year in a patent lawyer office as a Patent Assistant, Priebe joined in 2001 the Max-Born-Institute, Berlin, Germany, working in the High Field Laser Application Laboratory, responsible for the CPA single shot Nd:glass laser system and involved in the research of the X-ray laser group. In 2006, Priebe started as a Laser System Manager at STFC Daresbury Laboratory, where he commissioned and operated an CPA multi-10 TW Ti:sapphire laser system and developed an X-ray source based on inverse Compton scattering. In 2009, he moved back to the Max-Born-Institute as Division Leader of High Field Laser (HFL) Application Laboratory. Recently he joined the European XFEL GmbH in Hamburg, Germany.
