ATTOSECOND DYNAMICS
Prof. Dr. Reinhard Kienberger

The Research Group 'Attosecond Dynamics'  investigates the processes in atoms and molecules on the shortest currently achievable time scale, the attosecond time scale. One attosecond corresponds to 10-18 seconds, a period that is to a second what a second is to the age of the universe. ...

Prof. Dr. Matthias Kling

The Research Group 'Attosecond Imaging' is studying the electron dynamics in complex materials with high temporal and spatial resolution. An example is the direct observation of ultrafast collective electron dynamics in nanostructures (attosecond nanoplasmonics). ...

Dr. Eleftherios Goulielmakis

Attoelectronics is a term coined to describe the capability of triggering, as well as driving the motion of electrons within tens to thousands of attoseconds (1 as =10-18 sec); that is, on the native time scale of electronic processes in the fundamental constituents of matter--i.e. in atoms, molecules or more complex quantum systems such as a nanoparticles or nanostructures.

MUONIC ATOMS
Dr. Randolf Pohl

Our research is dedicated to laser spectroscopy of muonic atoms and ions. These are exotic systems in which one negative muon replaces the atoms' electrons. Muons are very the heavy brothers of electrons. Both are point-like particles, but muons are about 200 times heavier. Therefore, muons get on average 200 times closer to the atomic nucleus than electrons do.This makes the muon much more sensitive to the properties of the nucleus.
