In a recent paper published in JPhysB, researchers collaborating from Greece, France, Germany, The Netherlands and the United States observe a checkerboard interference pattern in the transverse momentum distribution for single-photon ionization of hydrogen atoms in a DC electric field….

Can we produce optically enough millimeter-wave radiation to accelerate electrons on a table-top? We hear from Dr Giovanni Cirmi.
An article presenting a comprehensive description of the design, scientific equipment and technological infrastructure soon to be available at the Extreme Light Infrastructure Attosecond Light Pulse Source (ELI-ALPS) facility.
Showing that strong-field physics can be simulated using an optical waveguide.

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.
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.
Attosecond physics studies processes that occur on a time scale of around 10-18 seconds. That’s 0.00000000000000001 seconds, which is to 1 second what a second is to the age of the universe. Pulses of light with attosecond duration could be… Read More ›
