The Hungarian Dennis Gábor discovered the principle of holography in theoretical work in 1947, when he tried to improve the resolution of electron…

In 2009, the journal Nature Physics called it the "Ionization Surprise". So far, physicists believed that they would understand the ionization of…

Together with the IfG Institute for Scientific Instruments GmbH, the Max Born Institute for Nonlinear Optics and Short Pulse Spectroscopy (MBI) for…

Either with tremendous force or very quickly in a row - that's how you could describe the current state of laser technology. Physicists at the Max…

Researchers at the Max-Born-Institut in Berlin directly measure the position of electrons and protons during a chemical reaction with ultrashort X-ray…

To understand an atom or a molecule, physicists must not only know their internal structure, but also be able to describe the motion of the electrons.…

To not only observe but really understand a chemical reaction, scientists need to know the behavior of electrons within molecules. Until now, it has…

Optical methods allow real-time investigations on the shortest time scales, which are not accessible by other methods. With lasers, light pulses of…

Isaac Newton found out in the 17th century that a force causes the acceleration of a body. The inert mass of the body corresponds to the ratio of…

Dr. Olga Smirnova, head of the Junior Group Theory "Attosecond multielectron dynamics in molecules" at the MBI, receives the Karl Scheel Prize of the…

Prof. Thomas Elsässer from the Max Born Institute for Nonlinear Optics and Short Pulse Spectroscopy in Berlin receives an "Advanced Grant" from the…
