Professor Peter Uhd Jepsen

Peter JepsenBiography:

Professor Peter Uhd Jepsen obtained the PhD degree in 1996, with a thesis on generation and detection of THz radiation from photoconductive antennas. He was then postdoc and later assistant professor at the university of Freiburg, where he investigated THz-frequency vibrational modes in molecular systems among other topics. He was awarded the Habilitation degree in 2003, and relocated to the Technical University of Denmark in 2005, where he became full professor in 2008. His current research interests include generation and application of strong-field THz sources for nonlinear THz spectroscopy and lightwave-driven phenomena such as electron tunneling in solid-state materials. These topics will be discussed at the conference.

Dr. Jepsen is chairman of the International Society for Infrared, Millimeter and Terahertz Waves and Fellow of the Optical Society of America (Optica).

Arriving by plane

Both Oslo Gardermoen (OSL, main airport) and Sandefjord Torp (TRF) are convenient. 

In the first case (OSL) it needs a 2 hour train trip to Tønsberg. In the other case (TRF) it is a little bus transfer to the train station (4 minutes) and then about 15 minutes to Tønsberg. Sandefjord Torp can be approached via Amsterdam (Schiphol) and Copenhagen (Kastrup).
From the railway station in Tønsberg there is a 10 minutes´ walk to the hotel, alternative a few minutes by taxi.
