About Dmitry Turchinovich
Dmitry Turchinovich is full professor (W3) of experimental physics at Bielefeld University. His research interests belong to ultrafast condensed matter physics, and to general ultrafast science. As the main experimental tool he and his colleagues use ultrafast terahertz (THz) spectroscopy, implemented in many different modalities. Dmitry Turchinovich received his Masters degree from St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University and Ioffe Institute in 1999, and his PhD from the University of Freiburg in 2004. Prior to his appointment at Bielefeld University in 2018, he held positions at Utrecht University (2004 - 2006), Technical University of Denmark (2006 - 2012), Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz (2012 - 2017), and the University of Duisburg-Essen (2017 - 2018). In 2015 - 2016 he was a visiting professor at Osaka University. In the recent years he has published numerous papers in Nature, Nature research journals and in Science, dedicated to ultrafast dynamics of charge, lattice and spins in various functional materials, as well as to novel nonlinear-optical techniques. In 2013 Dmitry Turchinovich was awarded the European Union Career Integration Grant, and in 2016 he was elected Senior Member of the Optical Society of America (OSA).
