Abstract: 

Are you planning to be nominated for the Nobel prize in the near future? If so, come to the informal seminar "How to get a Nobel Prize in Physics" by the member of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences Prof. Eva Lindroth, from Stokholm University. Prof. Lindroth will explain how Nobel candidates are selected, and talk about the scientific background and the motivations for this years' physics prize, "for groundbreaking inventions in the field of laser physics", to Arthur Ashkin, Gérard Mourou, and Donna Strickland.

Biography: 

Eva Lindroth is professor in physics at Stockholm University. She received her PhD degree from the University of Gothenburg 1987 on relativistic many-body theory and its application on questions concerning parity violation in atoms, under the supervision of Profs. Ingvar Lindgren and A-M Mårtensson-Pendrill. Eva Lindroth continued working on symmetry-violating effects with Prof. P. G.H. Sandars during a post doctoral period at the University of Oxford. She subsequently returned to Gothenburg for a junior faculty position where she started to work on resonances and doubly excited states in atoms and negative ions. In 1994 she moved to a permanent position at Stockholm University, where she is full professor since 2002. Her work in Stockholm focuses on photo-recombination of electrons and ions and on photoionization processes, with particular reference on the influence of resonances. Her work is often conducted in close collaboration with experimentalists. Today her main focus is on attosecond science and in particular on the theoretical description of photoemission delay.  In 2015 she was elected to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. She is currently at UCF to visit Dr. L. Argenti, a long-term collaborator of hers.
