|Title||Shock Waves in Membrane-Less Micro Tube|
Micro shock waves generated by intense laser pulses comprise a new area of physics which has attracted much interest in the international community. The topic of the present project is the mainly experimental investigation of shock waves in fluids that are generated within small tubes or capillaries. Shock waves are generated either with intense ultrashort laser pulses or by means of a fast magnetic valve. Parameters of the fluid and changes of its state should be investigated mostly with optical diagnostics. The main goal is to understand the related basic physics in detail. The acquired results will lead to future applications in microfluidics, nanotechnology, medical physics, sensor technology etc. Our group has comprehensive experimental and theoretical experience and plays a leading role in that field (see, e.g., Phys. Rev. Lett. 120 (2018) 064501 und New. J .Phys. 19 (2017) 103016).
According to the required qualification the PhD-position is funded with up to E 13 TV-L ("3/4-Stelle").
