Jure Demsar

University of Konstanz, Germany

Jure Demsar received his undergraduate degree in physics and his Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. After completing his Ph.D. degree in 2000, he spent 3 years at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico as a Director’s Postdoctoral Fellow before returning to Jozef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana as a Staff Member. In 2006, he received Sofja Kovalevskaja Award from Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, and since 2007, he heads a research group at the Physics Department of University of Konstanz, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. His research focuses on ultrafast phenomena in strongly correlated electron systems (superconductors, charge and spin density waves, heavy electron systems, and ferromagnets) utilizing time-resolved optical techniques from THz to ultraviolet and recently also time-resolved electron diffraction.
