In 1998, the graduate chemist successfully completed her doctorate at the Leibniz University of Hanover, where she focused on the properties of monolayers on insulating surfaces using infrared spectroscopy.

After working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Münster, she went to the FOM Institute Rijnhuizen in the Netherlands in 2000 with an Emmy Noether Fellowship from the DFG. There, she used the free-electron laser FELIX for her research and later managed its operation as well as its external use as facility manager from 2003.

With the relocation of the laser to Radboud University in 2013, she also moved there and became chair of FELIX in 2015 and its director in 2018. Furthermore, she leads a research group at the university since 2014 that uses the infrared and THz radiation of the laser to investigate properties of molecular systems and condensed matter.

Britta Redlich is a member of the Round Table Physics and a board member of the Dutch Physics Council. She is also a co-founder and member of a number of international consortia for accelerator-based photon sources and lasers, including LEAPS, LaserLab Europe and FELs of Europe.
