    The power of light

    team — Three extreme light facilities are being built in Europe, which will pave the way for further cutting-edge research. The ELI Attosecond facility in Hungary will be designed to allow scientists to take snapshots of electron activity in atoms in the attosecond scale (a billionth of a billionth of a second), and further our understanding and control of attoscience. One of Europe’s main attosecond research facilities is the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (LAP), where researchers are making discoveries at the atomic level, such as in this experiment using rare gas atoms and pulses of infrared light.
