Wim Ubachs - VU University, Amsterdam

Wim Ubachs obtained his PhD degree in 1986 from the University of Nijmegen, for a thesis on high resolution laser spectroscopy. In 1986 he was a visiting scientist at the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (Peoples Republic of China) and in 1987-1988 he was a Post-Doctoral fellow at the Department of Chemistry at Stanford University (USA) in the group of Prof. R.N. Zare.

Since 1988 he is with VU University in Amsterdam, in the period 2000-2010 as Director of the Laser Centre VU. In the period 2001-2004 he has held a part-time Professorship at the Eindhoven University of Technology, in 2002 he was Guest Professor at ETH Zürich, and in summer 2006 at the Tokyo University of Science. Since 2003 he is full professor of Atomic, Molecular and Laser Physics at VU, mainly working in laser spectroscopy, where XUV-lasers is his specialty. For the past six years he has become deeply involved in the issue of drifting fundamental constants, and therewith in astronomical observations. He has co-authored over 200 scientific papers (see http://www.nat.vu.nl/~wimu/PUBS.html ).
