The awards will enable them to spend up to one year cooperating on a long-term research project with specialist colleagues at a research institution in Germany.

Zhang, the M. Parker Givens Professor of Optics, will work with Hartmut Roskos, a professor of physics at Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt. Roskos, like Zhang, is an expert in terahertz physics and technology. Zhang plans to visit several other German research groups to discuss topics related to terahertz waves, nonlinear optics, and imaging.
