Stefan C. Muller is an emeritus professor of physics at the University of Magdeburg, Germany. After obtaining his doctoral degree at the University of Goettingen in 1978, he spent 3 years as postdoctoral researcher in the USA, first at MIT and then at Stanford University in California. He was subsequently a researcher at the Max-Planck-Institute in Dortmund until 1994, when he transferred his research to Magdeburg.
Kinko Tsuji is a physical chemist. She obtained her doctoral degree at the University of Tokyo in 1976. As a researcher she worked at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel and at the Max-Planck-Institutes in Munich and in Dortmund. Since 1981 she has worked at the company Shimadzu Europa GmbH, developing applications of ultra high-speed cameras. Furthermore, she was active in the "Japan Business Council in Europe" in Brussels and served as a chairperson of the planning committee.
