Strong interactions between photons mediated by a single atom

June 19, 2018
Physicists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching observe strong interactions between photons of different color in an atom cavity system. [more]

The Big Bell Test

May 10, 2018
Global physics experiment challenges Einstein with the help of 100,000 volunteers. [more]

Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

April 23, 2018
Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance. [more]

Laser-based X-ray Imaging Picks Up Speed

April 17, 2018
Using a novel, laser-based X-ray technique, laser physicists in Garching have imaged a bone sample in three dimensions by microtomography within minutes, thus taking a significant step towards the medical application of the technology. [more]

The Future of Ultrafast Solid-State Physics
