Goran Pichler, scientific advisor permanently employed at the Institute of Physics in Zagreb, was born in Zagreb in 1946. He graduated and received his master’s degree in physics from the Faculty of Science in Zagreb, and his Doctorate from the University of Kiel with topics in atomic and molecular physics. He was Director of the Institute of Physics in Zagreb and Head of the Department of Ionized Gas Physics. He was also leader of several international (USA, Germany, Austria) and domestic projects, achieving recognisable scientific achievements in femtosecond laser research and the creation and detection of ultracold molecules. He is member of the American Physical Society (member since 2000; enrolled in a peak of 0.5% of members), the English Institute of Physics, the European Society of Physics, the German Society for Physics, and the Croatian Physical Society (which he presided over for two terms).
