On an irregular basis various Special Seminars take place at the MPQ. The seminars are organized by scientists of our divisions, administration or staff representatives. The location will be announced with the event.

Strong-field dynamics of molecules: electron-nuclear correlation (Prof. Jian Wu)

Strong-field dynamics of molecules: electron-nuclear correlation
The primary phase of the light-molecule interaction is the photon energy absorption and deposition. Although the electron is much lighter than the nuclei, there is a strong electron-nuclear correlation for molecules exposed to strong laser fields. The photon energy deposits into the nuclei governs the succeeding dynamics and thus the fate of the molecules. [more]

Non-linear response in extended systems: a real-time approach (Dr. C. Attaccalite)

I will present a new formalism to study linear and non-linear response in extended systems. Our approach is based on real-time solution of an effective Schrödinger equation. [more]

Freewheeling across laser’s wonderland: from mid-infrared filaments to neurophotonics (Prof. A. Zheltikov)

With empowering inspiration from multidisciplinary activities of the MPQ/MAP/CALA constellation, this talk will undertake an adventure of a freewheeling tour over wildly different landscapes of laser’s wonderland. [more]
Spectroscopic analysis allows for the label-free objective classification of biological material on the molecular scale. This technique has been applied to histology, cytology and surgical pathology and can detect subtle changes in the proteome and metabolome. [more]

WORKSHOP "Future of ultrashort pulses"

The availability of waveform-controlled, intense, few cycle laser fields has radically expanded the ability of scientists to peer into the dynamics of atoms and solids on few-femtosecond or even attosecond time scales. This research in the field of attosecond science has hinted at the potential for new discoveries that may be unlocked by new developments in laser science to confine more and more energy into smaller and smaller packages to be precisely delieved to the systems under study.
