The force of the vacuum

November 30, 2018
Scientists from the Theory Department have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. [more]

Terahertz laser pulses amplify optical phonons in solids

November 14, 2018
Evidence of the amplification of optical phonons in a solid by intense terahertz laser pulses. These light bursts excite atomic vibrations to very large amplitudes, where their response to the driving electric field becomes nonlinear and conventional description fails to predict their behavior.

Atomic view of nature's amazing molecular machines at work

October 30, 2018
Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the MPSD (Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Toronto in Canada and the ETH in Zurich, Switzerland, have developed a new method to watch biomolecules at work.
