The taming of the light screw

March 21, 2019
Scientists from DESY, the MPSD, the University of Hamburg and the CUI Cluster of Excellence create high-order harmonics from solids with controlled polarization states, taking advantage of both crystal symmetry and attosecond electronic dynamics. The newly demonstrated technique might find intriguing applications in petahertz electronics and for spectroscopic studies of novel quantum materials. [more]

Unraveling materials' Berry curvature and Chern numbers from real-time evolution of Bloch states

February 12, 2019
Researchers from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg and UNIST (Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology) in Korea used a state-of-the-art quantum dynamical method to calculate the quantum of spin or charge Hall conductivity, by which they successfully classified the intrinsic topological natures of materials. Their work has been published in PNAS. [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.
