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.

Shedding light on Weyl fermions

October 26, 2018
Researchers from the Theory Department have demonstrated that the long-sought magnetic Weyl semi-metallic state can be induced by ultrafast laser pulses in a three-dimensional class of magnetic materials dubbed pyrochlore iridates. [more]

Electronic dynamical processes in GaAs at attosecond level

April 04, 2018
Scientists from the Department of Physics at ETH Zurich in Switzerland and the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg shed new light on the electronic dynamical processes that occur upon excitation of electrons in gallium arsenide at the attosecond timescale.

Splicing together a thin film in motion

March 15, 2018
MPSD researcher Dr. Kenneth Beyerlein provides a new approach to imaging thin films on the atomic scale, using an algorithm for image recovery that splices together a sequence of frames in time. The algorithm is showcased in a publication of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) by recovering the response of a Neodymium Nickelate thin film to a disturbance initiated at its interface.

Good Vibrations feel the force

February 22, 2018
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are at large distances from the equilibrium arrangements. This promises new insights into the mechanical properties of matter and their instability near phase changes. [more]

2D materials generate HHG like atoms

February 16, 2018
Scientists from the MPSD’s theory department have shown that two-dimensional crystals can be used as an alternative to atoms and molecules to generate high-order harmonics. [more]
