Christian works since 2011 as researcher at Combustion Physics. His current main activity is within the field of pico-second diagnostics mainly using laser-induced fluorescence but his work also include methods based on non-linear optics.
Christian received his Master’s degree in Engineering Physics in 1998 and the Ph.D. degree from the Division of Combustion Physics in 2004. The thesis covered laser-based methods for combustion diagnostics, in particular rotational coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) and laser-induced fluorescence. The experimental work included studies of combustion in laboratory scale flames, internal combustion engines, and the High Pressure Combustor Facility. Within the framework of the CECOST program he also carried out investigations of biofuel pyrolysis.
In 2005, Christian joined the group of Molecular Microscopy, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. The research was on microscopy techniques based on laserinduced non-linear optical processes such as coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS), multi-photon fluorescence, second and third harmonic generation. His work included both technical development and applications of the methods in biology and chemistry. Examples of applications included lipidomics, food science and tissue engineering.
