    Our most recent short movie: Explaining the »switch for the future«

    team — The public outreach team at LAP has created a short movie dealing with the research of two of our latest Nature Photonics papers:

    Solid-state light-phase detector
    Attosecond metrology: from electron capture to future signal processing

    »A switch for the future« shows that in the coming years, light could be used to speed up computers and information technology by using ultrafast, oscillating electric fields of light to control electrons. Electric current can now be switched on and off, and light signals can be modulated within the oscillation cycle of visible light.
