Pierre Agostini (French pronunciation: ​[pjɛʁ aɡɔstini]; born 23 July 1941) is a French experimental physicist. He is an Emeritus professor at Ohio State University. He is known for his work in strong-field laser physics and attosecond science.[1] He is also known for his invention of the reconstruction of attosecond beating by interference of two-photon transitions (RABBITT) technique.[2] He was jointly awarded the 2023 Nobel Prize in Physics.[3]
