Attosecond physics: New movies from the microcosmos

With the aid of terahertz radiation, Munich physicists have developed a method for generating and controlling ultrashort electron pulses. With further improvements, this technique should be capable of capturing even electrons in motion.

Atoms placed precisely in silicon can act as quantum simulator

In a proof-of-principle experiment, researchers have demonstrated that a small group of individual atoms placed very precisely in silicon can act as a quantum simulator, mimicking nature - in this case, the weird quantum interactions of electrons in materials.

Manipulating light inside opaque layers

Light propagating in a layer of scattering nanoparticles, shows the principle of diffusion. The deeper light is penetrating into the layer, the lower the energy density. Scientists managed to turn this falling diffusion curve into a rising one, by manipulating the incident light.

The atom without properties

The microscopic world is governed by the rules of quantum mechanics, where the properties of a particle can be completely undetermined and yet strongly correlated with those of other particles. Physicists have observed these so-called Bell correlations for the first time between hundreds of atoms.
