Quality control of quantum simulators

November 18, 2015
Scientists of the FU Berlin, the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, and the MPQ develop a new certification method for photonic quantum simulators. [more]

Film production in 4D with ultrashort electron pulses

October 27, 2015
Physicists of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics shorten electron pulses down to 30 femtoseconds duration. This enables them to gain detailed insight into atomic motions in molecules. [more]

High-speed march through a layer of graphene

October 05, 2015
In cooperation with the Center for Nano-Optics of Georgia State University in Atlanta (USA), scientists of the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics of the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität have made simulations of the processes that happen when a layer of carbon atoms is irradiated with strong laser light.

Laser-based molecular fingerprinting

September 22, 2015
Physicists from the LMU, MPQ and ICFO have developed an infrared laser that can be used to identify and quantify molecules in complex mixtures with high specificity and sensitivity. [more]

Mini X-ray source with laser light

August 14, 2015
Physicists from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and the TU München have developed a method using laser-generated X-rays and phase-contrast X-ray tomography to produce three-dimensional images of soft tissue structures in organisms. [more]

Attosecond Electron Catapult

August 12, 2015
A team of physicists and chemists from the Laboratory of Attosecond Physics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics has studied the interaction of light with tiny glass particles. [more]

Focused Laser Power Boosts Ion Acceleration

August 10, 2015
An international team of physicists has used carbon nanotubes to enhance the efficiency of laser-driven particle acceleration. This significant advance brings compact sources of ionizing radiation for medical purposes closer to reality. [more]

Quantum Matter Stuck in Unrest

July 31, 2015
Using ultracold atoms trapped in light crystals, scientists from the MPQ, LMU, and the Weizmann Institute observe a novel state of matter that never thermalizes. [more]
