Topping-out ceremony "a milestone" for growing MPSD

June 15, 2018
The Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD), the Max Planck Society, construction firms and their employees celebrated the topping-out of the MPSD’s new building on the research campus Bahrenfeld today. The building offers space for two new research departments at the MPSD as well as several junior groups. It is due for completion in 2020. [more]

Eurasc elects Cavalleri as member

May 07, 2018
Andrea Cavalleri, the founding director of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter and a Professor of Physics at Oxford University, has been elected member of the European Academy of Sciences (EURASC), a non-profit, non-governmental and independent organization of distinguished scholars. It aims to elect the best European scientists as members in order to strengthen European science and scientific cooperation across national borders.  [more]

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]
