A novel microscope for nanosystems

June 24, 2015
LMU/MPQ-scientists can image the optical properties of individual nanoparticles with a novel microscope. [more]

A novel source of X-rays for imaging purposes

June 16, 2015
Physicists at LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have validated a novel laser-driven means of generating bright and highly energetic X-ray beams. The method opens up new ways of imaging the fine structure of matter. [more]

Solid-state photonics goes extreme ultraviolet

May 28, 2015
Using ultrashort laser pulses, scientists in Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have demonstrated the emission of extreme ultraviolet radiation from thin dielectric films and have investigated the underlying mechanisms. [more]
