Photo-induced superconductivity on a chip 

Researchers at the MPSD have shown that a previously demonstrated ability to turn on superconductivity with a laser beam can be integrated on a chip, opening up a route toward opto-electronic applications.  more

10 THz laser boosts superconductivity in K<sub>3</sub>C<sub>60</sub>

Researchers from the Cavalleri group have discovered a far more efficient way to create a previously observed metastable, superconducting-like state in K3C60 using laser light. Their work has appeared in Nature Physics. more

28 PhD projects on offer in this year’s IMPRS-UFAST Call

The International Max Planck Research School for Ultrafast Imaging & Structural Dynamics (IMPRS-UFAST) has opened this year’s call for applicants. more

THz light triples YTiO<sub>3 </sub>transition temperature

Terahertz light pulses can stabilize ferromagnetism in YTiO3 at temperatures more than three times its usual transition temperature. Researchers from the Cavalleri group report in Nature that the high-temperature ferromagnetic state persisted for many nanoseconds after the light exposure. more

Five weeks as an intern at the MPSD

Wiebke Kohlbrecher (20) has spent five weeks at the MPSD to learn at first hand about the day-to-day work of its researchers. She will complete three internships in total as part of the Hamburg-based ProTechnicale program which offers female school leavers an orientation year in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) occupations.  more
