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]

Keep in touch, use the vacuum! How mirrors can control physics and chemistry

February 04, 2019
Hamburg scientists’ theory of polaritonically amplified energy transfer over long distances between molecules paves the way for a new level of chemical engineering and ‘spooky chemistry’. [more]

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]

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]

Magnetic responses in non-magnetic layers

February 12, 2018
Circularly polarized phonons produce a valley-dependent dynamic spin state as a result of strong spin-phonon coupling, which can be developed as a vehicle for quantum computation or spintronics applications. [more]
