We’ve all heard of antimatter, but there is much more to it than science fiction.
This week’s Image of the Week – imaging biological microstructures at SACLA
Today is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science!
Read an interview with an expert who’s bridging the gap between atomic and nuclear physics.
As we move into the new year, I take a look back at some of the biggest science stories that captured our interest in 2015.
We chat to Dr Barry Bruner from the Weizmann Institute of Science about his work in ultrafast science, high harmonic generation and his love of baseball.
The second of our festive Images of the Week.
To be able to control chemical reactions on a quantum level holds huge potential for redesigning chemical synthesis and a host of other applications. An established way of doing this is through the use of laser pulses interacting with molecules. … Read More ›
Analysing the atmospheres of exoplanets needs knowledge of the molecules they are made up of. University College London’s Professor Jonathan Tennyson is working on the ExoMol project to do just that. We talk to him about his work.
But nor is it a space station. While it might bear some resemblance to a certain location from a famous film franchise, today’s Image of the Week entry is actually a visual representation of the properties of a laser pulse…. Read More ›
We talk to Professor David B. Cassidy from the Atomic, Molecular, Optical and Positron Physics group at University College London about his work with positronium – an exotic atom made of matter and antimatter – and more. Q: Which research… Read More ›
This week’s Image of the Week is taken from a recent JPhysB paper in which theoretical methods are used to study the photo-double ionization of carbon dioxide. O Alwan et al determine the multiply differential cross section of a CO2… Read More ›
In this week’s Image of the Week, Alice and Bob take part in a quantum duel.
We talk to Professor Lars Bojer Madsen about where attosecond physics might go in the future, who inspired him to become a scientist and why some of the hottest topics in AMO physics are actually the coldest.
We talk to Professor Michael Schulz. In this interview he answers our questions about his research, what problems science needs to solve, and his advice for young scientists.
