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]

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]
