Anne Weber completed an undergraduate degree in BA Psychology before she turned to Physics, where she then graduated with a master's degree from the University of Jena, Germany.

The topic of her master's thesis was HHG driven by bi-elliptical two-colour laser beams, which she simulated using the quantum orbit approach. Her PhD now deals with the applicability of the quantum orbit approach near the high-harmonic cutoff.

Thesis title

Caustics and catastrophes in strong-field and attosecond processes.

Research interests

  • High-harmonic generation
  • Two-colour laser fields
  • Caustics and catastrophe theory

PhD supervision 

Principal supervisor: Dr Emilio Pisanty

Secondary Supervisor: Dr Amelle Zaïr
