Dr. Buchmann Lukas F.
Ph.D. student

Dr. Lukas F. Buchmann received his PhD degree in Physics from the University of Crete in 2010, having spent 3 years in our Group.
He then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Arizona (USA) and at the University of California, Berkeley (USA). 
Between 2015 and 2017 Lukas was a joint research associate at Aarhus University (Denmark) and in our group. After staying 
two more years at Aarhus University, Lukas went to Switzerland in 2019, where he is now a Senior Expert in Software and Optical 
Measurements at FISBA AG.
