A team in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (LAP) at the Max-Planck-Institute of Quantum Optics has taken another step toward the achievement of complete control over the waveform of pulsed laser light.
How can molecules be split in a controlled manner? A new experiment at the TU Vienna shows how research into ultra-short laser pulses can be combined with chemistry.
Physicists have long chased an elusive goal: the ability to "freeze" and then study the motion of electrons in matter.
A team of international researchers have fired ultra-fast shots of light at oxygen, nitrogen and carbon monoxide molecules as part of a development aimed at mapping the astonishingly quick movements of atoms within molecules, as well as the charges that surround them.
An expedition through the fast-paced microscopic world of atoms reveals electrons that spin at enormous speeds and the gigantic forces that act on them.
An international team of scientists has used ultrashort flashes of laser light to directly observe the movement of an atomâ€™s outer electrons for the first time.
Contrary to previous assumptions, electrons are catapulted out of an atom during photoemission with a delay.
When light is absorbed by atoms, the electrons become excited.
Joint spin-off of LMU Munich and MPG established.
Predatory fish are well aware of the problem: In a swarm of small fish it is hard to isolate prey. A similar situation can be found in the microcosm of atoms and molecules, whose behavior is influenced by "swarms" of electrons.
