team — How do electrons in nanoparticles collectively behave under the influence of strong laser fields? The opportunity to follow up on this question is now given to the team of researchers lead by Dr. Matthias Kling from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics. With the ERC Starting Grant their research is supported by the European Union (EU) for 5 years. Starting Grants are given to young researchers for outstanding and groundbreaking research projects. The research project »ATTOCO,« under which the control and tracing of collective electron dynamics on attosecond timescales is going to be investigated, will be supported by about 1,5 million Euros.
