team — The Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics has a new research partner group at the Wigner Research Centre for Physics, which is part of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest. Dr. Dombi’s (Foto: MPQ) research group will work together closely with the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (LAP) of Prof. Ferenc Krausz at the MPQ for the next three years. Dombi’s team is working on ultrafast interactions of electron collectives in solid states with light, processes which take place within femtoseconds to attoseconds. A femtosecond is a millionth of a billionth of a second (10−15), an attosecond is even a thousand times shorter.
