Peter Haring Bolivar was born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1969. He studied 1987-1992 electrical engineering at the RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany. During his thesis, he made the first observation of Bloch oscillations, a fundamental phenomenon predicted since the beginnings of the 20th century. 1992-93 he was head of the Rescue Equipment division at Nautica Diesel Europea in Mexico-City. He worked 1993-1996 as a scientific assistant at the Institut fьr Halbleitertechnik II of the RWTH Aachen on conjugated polymers and femtosecond dynamics in semicoductors. His Ph.D. work was awarded with a Heinrich Hertz fellowship from the science and research ministry of the state of Northrhine-Westfalia and the Wilhelm Borchers medallion of the RWTH Aachen. From 1997-2001 he was head of ultrahigh-frequency research at the Institut of Semiconductor Electronics at the RWTH Aachen where he directed applied and fundamental scientific research on coherent Terahertz spectroscopy, and ultrahigh-frequency optical characterization of electronic GHz-devices. From 2001-2004 he was head of research at the same institution with ample activities in the fields of optoelectronics, ultrafast science, ultrahigh frequency devices, optical data storage and nanotechnology, earning the Friedrich Wilhelm price of the RWTH Aachen. Currently he is head of the Institute for High Frequency and Quantum Electronics at the University of Siegen. He holds three patents, five book contributions and over 70 peer-review publications.
