    A compendium of attosecond physics
    research — Our knowledge of how electrons behave in atoms and molecules is steadily increasing. This is largely due to the advances in attosecond physics that have taken place over the past two decades. Professor Ferenc Krausz was one of the pioneers in this young field. Indeed, he was the first to break into the attosecond domain, generating pulses of light with sub-femtosecond durations in 2001. Such ultrashort flashes can be used to study the ultrafast dynamics of electrons within atoms. Krausz has now published a book that traces the development of attosecond physics. Entitled “Electrons in Motion”, it draws on all the …

    Ultrafast metrology for medical applications
    team — Distinguished visitors at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics. The Board of Governors of Wellcome Trust payed a visit at our laboratories at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max-Planck Institute of Quantum Optics. The visitors were informed about how molecular spectrometry can benefit from ultrafast metrology to detect diseases in blood at an early stage. Afterwards, Prof. Ferenc Krausz, Matthew Weidman, Ioachim Pupeza and Mihaela Zigman showed them the laboratories. The Wellcome Trust supports researchers around the world, exploring fundamental questions about health and disease. The Trust is named …

    Bright attosecond x-ray pulses
    research — Scientists invent a way to see attosecond electron motions with an X-ray laser. The new method will provide sharp views of electrons in chemical processes that take place in a billionths of a billionth of a second and drive crucial aspects of life.
